Listen to Ben Dehan Bring Some Summer Vibes on, “Days Go By”

by The Alchemist

Baltimore based Alt/ Indie Artist, Ben DeHan, writes music you can connect to on an emotional level, akin to Third Eye Blind or Jimmy Eat World. Littered with moments of Catharsis, Joy, and Introspection, his music becomes a life soundtrack. As the guitarist of American Diary, Ben got his start on the Vans Warped Tour alongside bands like Angels and Airwaves, The Academy Is, and Matisyahu. Since then, he has spent countless hours writing and honing a sound that’s both accessible and intelligent and has begun releasing music and playing shows. Whether it’s a trip to the beach or driving through the mountains, these are jams to roll the windows down, sing out loud, and make memories to. Watch out for new songs and tour dates in the coming months!

This song makes one feel as if they are walking on the beach with loved ones, as the cover art suggests. While most people are stuck inside during quarantine, this song can make the listener feel as if they are adventuring all over the world with just the instrumental portion. It makes it seem as if all is well in the world, and we have found what they are looking for. Find out more about Ben here: bendehanmusic.com/

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.
