GLOSSER hails from Washington D.C., the capital of the United States, and their music embodies the essence of contemporary American pop. Their self-titled debut project, released last year, showcased the band’s ability to blend hazy, guitar-heavy retro vibes with cutting-edge chill pop trends.
Their latest release, “Disco Girls,” marks a delightful departure from their expected too-cool sound. This new single is a lively and upbeat celebration of youth. Set to a groovy bassline and lively synth, lead singer Riley Fanning croons, “Disco in the streets at night / The summer makes you feel alive.” She continues in this high-energy, sultry mood, “The best is gone but we’re still high / It’s all just a ride / Kiss in the dark.”
The accompanying music video for “Disco Girls” opens with three blondes in white shirts and light wash denim, exuding an irresistible air of confidence as they lean against a red convertible car while smoking cigarettes. Their carefree energy is enviable as they enjoy beers, frolic in an open field, and revel in each other’s company.
Fanning explains the video’s concept, saying, “I wanted the video to mirror the song’s themes, which are centered on being a young girl. It’s this time in your life where you can have so much fun, but you’re also so reckless and lost. The video follows 3 girls as they’re searching for something, and by the end, they still haven’t found it. They’ll keep searching.”
Despite GLOSSER being a duo comprised of Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, their sound is full and innovative. They make for perfect collaborators, offering a straightforward yet fearless approach to their music, constantly pushing the boundaries of their sonic exploration. “Disco Girls” is the lead single from their highly anticipated full-length album, “Downer,” which promises to provide a layered and nuanced perspective on the evolving direction of pop music.
