L.A.-based metal band, SYNN has just released their brand new single “Give In To Me,” featured in the mind-bending horror film, 11th Hour Cleaning, along with the accompanying music video highlighting select scenes from the film.
Marking the feature directorial debut for Ty Leishe, 11th Hour Cleaning was just released digitally and as video-on-demand on July 5, 2022. Starring Chloe Brooks (Embed), Eddie Finlay(2 Fast 2 Furious), Anita Leeman-Torres (Speed Kills), Ed Morrone (FinalKill) and Dave Baez (Dexter), the fim follows a group of crime scene cleaners that struggle to escape a murder house after becoming trapped by an ancient Nordic demon that is hell-bent on driving them insane. By the end of the day, 11th Hour Cleaning could be found on the Top 100 horror movie chart on Apple TV.
Featuring the talents of Melissa Jane Dichiera (vocals), Mike Status (bass), John Chominsky (drums), and Christopher Sestric (guitar), SYNN is a rock and metal band that made their debut in 2019 with the release of their full-length album, Venom. “Give In To Me” is the first new original track released by the band since, though in 2019 SYNN released a cover version of “Bodies,” made famous by Drowning Pool in 2001. In the context of the film, “Give In To Me” could be sung from the perspective of 11th Hour Cleaning’s Nordic demon, “No one hears your silent screams / You only see what you believe,” before resolving on the song’s repeated tag line, “Give in to me.” Featuring select scenes from the film along with the band’s performance, the music video and the song itself (written for the film’s closing credits) do a fantastic job of duplicating the film’s tension, and SYNN joins a long list of edgy artists who have aligned their dark sounds to horror film soundtracks, such as Rob Zombie’s “Living Dead Girl” (Bride of Chucky), Alice Cooper’s “The Man Behind the Mask” (Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives), and Motorhead “Hellraiser” (Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth)

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.
