On November 9th, 2019, a young girl celebrated her seventh birthday by holding a peaceful protest outside of the White House. Her sign read “Time’s Up for the Bad Stuff,” as she and a hundred of her friends and their parents marched through a small section Washington, D.C. For the event, the young girl asked her mother to hire artivist musician Emma G, who gladly attended and performed, and was inspired to write her seventh single specifically for the event. With a Goddess-rock drive that is true to Emma G’s edgy style, and with strong electronic and dubstep overtones, “Time’s Up for the Bad Stuff” is a stuck-in-your-head-for-days catchy tune produced by longtime producer Flightboy Music and co-produced by Emma G’s Band of Misfits member DJ Reality Check.
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.
