Brit Award and a BBC Music Award winner Celeste has just released her latest single, “Hear My Voice.” The music video shows the connection the song has in setting the mood for the upcoming Netflix film, The Trial of the Chicago 7. Celeste’s sincere vocals blend together elements of Soul and R&B to draw attention to this timely story about a peaceful protest that turns into a violent clash between police. The film, which just releases today, is Directed by Aaron Sorkin; with Eddie Redmayne, Alex Sharp, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Jeremy Strong. “Hear My Voice” is available now on all major music platforms.
When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
