Quebec based singer-songwriter, Claudia Bouvette, is fed up with the drama and ready to cut ties in her new single “Solo Night”.
In the opening chorus, she sings, “I know a solo night’s gonna do me some good” wasting no time in sharing her desire to get away from a deadbeat partner. “He showed up late / Didn’t want me sober” she continues on in the first verse, “Just a minute of him and his 10K bling turned me off”. She quickly throws the scenario flat out on table with no hesitation in defense of her want to gather her girlfriends for a night on the town. No amount of money, alcohol, or flash is going to make her want to stick around.
Steeped in the notion of empowering women to prioritize their own happiness over the remains of toxic relationships, Bouvette delivers the message with a pop flair that brings female friendships to the forefront. Produced by Connor Seidel, this single acts as an ode to women’s liberation from oppressive male influence in a way that is endlessly fun. A great soundtrack for a girl’s night out featuring plenty of clubs, dancing, and laughs at the expense of lousy significant others.
“Solo Night” is available on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. An accompanying music video is also available on YouTube. Find this and more great music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify and YouTube.

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.
