From our show at Castleburg Brewery & Taproom in Richmond VA on February 22, 2020. Unknown to us at the time, this was the last show we were to play before everything shut down for the coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, our friend Matthew was on hand to record this song from our 3rd set, “High and Low”
High and Low is one of our ‘outlaw’ songs, a story about revenge and payback.
Here’s a funny story about High and Low: Once upon a time, a real outlaw was arrested after we performed High and Low at a show. He was an on-the-run escaped convict sitting alone in a dark corner of the venue, must have thought we were singing about him. He hastily left the venue after the final guitar strum and ran into the waiting arms of the cops in the parking lot who had been pursuing him. True story. The power of music.
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.
