Josh Fudge Dreams in “TECHNICOLOR”

Dream pop aficionado, Josh Fudge, shows off effortless grace and coolness in the new synth-soaked single “TECHNICOLOR” which is also the title track off his debut album. You can almost see the swirling kaleidoscope of color with the opening sample as it pulls you through a tunnel of synthesized sound.

On the other end of that tunnel opens a world of fantastic vibrance and electronic beats. “It feels like time flies by every time I close my eyes” Fudge sings before the chorus. As he begins to “dream in technicolor”, we dive into another musical break where big neon laser synth dance around with a flick of the wrist.

Using a softer approach with catchy pop hooks, Josh Fudge dives right into a psychedelic pool of 80’s pop throwback that feels kin to the funky sounds of Chromeo or Cherub. The whole composition melds perfectly in a nice slow and sensual jam that revels in the joy of synesthesia – where sound and color collide in fantastic effect.

“TECHNICOLOR”, along with Josh Fudge’s debut album of the same name, are both available on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. Find this and more excellent music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture Playlist on Spotify.

GLOSSER Releases Deluxe Edition of Debut Record, DOWNER

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__]( 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.
