Soran Leif is Searching for Love With “Glimpses of You”

by The Alchemist

Soran Leif is an artist that is currently based out of DC with his dog Bentley. By focusing on emotional resonance, Soran Leif builds musical worlds for listeners to enjoy. Being an artist that is influenced by all genres, he is a true embodiment of a post-genre era artist that fuses many styles of music into his own creative style. With help from his amazing pup, Soran Leif strives to uplift his audience moods with heartfelt pieces of art.

His newest track is called, “Glimpses of You” and it is a track that blends both LoFi Soul with a breakbeat tone. The song makes us feel at ease, and it has a very relaxing texture to it. The production has a very simple structure, but it is complemented very well with his vocals to create the end result.

When asked about the song he says,

“When creating this track, I wanted to establish the feel of someone that is searching for the love of their life. When we are in a relationship with someone, we hope that that person is our soul mate but most of the time, it’s just a glimpse into what we are searching for because things fall apart for various reasons. This track is about that search and yearning to find that special someone.”

He also runs a YouTube series for the sub Reddit Indie Music Feedback where artists take the same starting stems and make their own songs. He takes these songs and creates a musical showcase to help unknown artists gain more popularity. You can find out more about that here youtu.be/hCF9McEYN5I and also check out the track below.

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.
