Plight Takes Flight with New Album and Tour

Brooklyn-based Indie rockers, Plight, have begun a string of tour dates along the east coast in support of their debut album, Plastic Sun.

The band’s description of the album fleshes out a sense of isolation that is both vague and dense: “Plastic Sun is about finding your beach on a trash island drifting somewhere in the ocean.” The music follows suit with heavily distorted riffs, floating melodies, and terraced dynamics as evidenced in the leading single “No Outlet”. Following in the footsteps of grungy forebearers, Plight plunges into the depths of the ocean with both ferocity and tenderness.

“No Outlet” has also been accompanied by a music video featuring a video of the band playing the song on a vintage television placed in urban locations like subways, skate parks, busy crosswalks, jetties overlooking a bay, and many more. Like the album’s description, there is a sense of isolation with the band not being physically present in the recording. And the vintage model of television used harkens back to their 90’s roots.

“No Outlet” and Plastic Sun are available now on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. The accompanying music video is also available on YouTube.

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.
