Kronedge of D.C. Release Self-Titled Album Filled with Bangla Rock Songs

After listening to Kronedge’s self-titled album, which was released on March 3, 2023, we are impressed. They produce Bangla rock songs that transcend multiple genres. Often complex and technical in nature, their songs have garnered accolades from many, which only seemed to have energized and inspired the band even more.

Kronedge is a rock band based out of Washington, D.C. and have been around since 2016. They already have six singles and a live EP. 

Their latest album is chocked full of pulse-raising numbers such as ‘Kop’ and ‘Gono-Rajtontro’ and a more chill side such as ‘Ke Dake’, which starts with the sound of the ocean. You will enjoy haunting guitar work, poignant lyrics (in Bangla) about social injustice, punchy basswork, Armeen Musa and Ghashphoring Choir, and a kaleidoscope of different styles as the band takes you through a journey of music written by each one of the band members.

Interesting to note, Bangla bands, outside of Bangladesh, mostly play cover songs. That is because of the demand of the audience. Can anyone blame them though? That is their way of connecting with the motherland. What Kronedge is doing is unique. With the album, shows, even their professional looking website, the band has made a bold statement. After many years of hard work, it is safe to say, they have finally arrived.

The self-titled album, released through ME (Mushroom Entertainment) Label, is available on all major music platforms, including the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture Playlist on Spotify and YouTube. Check out Kronedge on www.kronedge.com and be sure to follow, like and share on your favorite social media sites.

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__](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.
