Having performed at Camden Rocks Festival and supported the likes of HMLTD, proud members of the LGBTQ+ scene Glossii have now shared their raucous new single.
Filled with scuzzy riffs and the raw grit of Sofia Zanghirella’s vocals, ‘Watching Me’ is an instantly infectious blast of post-punk bliss, complete with plenty of snarling attitude.
We caught up with the band to find out more…
Hi Glossii, welcome to Get In Her Ears! Can you tell us a bit about the band? How did you initially all get together and start creating music?
We all used to play in different bands on a Saturday music club. Our bassist Charlie Face-timed Lewis asking to be in a band where they would go on stage in drag. It developed into the androgynous style we have today.
Your new single ‘Watching Me’ is out now – can you tell us what it’s all about?
‘Watching Me’ is about growing up and going against your parents’ rules.
You’ve been compared to the likes of Wolf Alice and Garbage, but who would you say are your main musical influences?
We each all have different influences, and that is what creates our sound. Between all of us our main influences are Wolf Alice, Slaves, Idles, Marmozets and Haze to name a few.
How is your local music scene? Do you go to see lots of live music?
The London and southern music scene is strong because of the rise in popularity of Post-Punk which has made a new cult following of young and old punks as one. We try to go to a gig once a week as a band to network and make friends and connections.
And what can fans expect from your live shows?
If you come to experience our live shows you should expect non-stop high energy, loud chanting and a cram-packed sweaty audience. Don’t shy down at our shows, we wanna see you move!
As we’re a new music focused site, are there any new/upcoming bands or artists you’d recommend we check out?
The list could go on! But some of our favourites are: Gurr, Haze, HMLTD, Wooze, Squid and Viagra Boys.
And how do you feel the music industry is for new bands at the moment – would you say it’s difficult to get noticed?
The music industry is hard for new bands to understand and it does take a huge amount of determination and perseverance to get noticed. Your music is not always going to be liked by everyone, even if it’s well produced or written, but your can’t take that to heart. Just move on and do what you like the sound of.
Finally, what does the rest of 2018 have in store for Glossii?
We have lots of gigs to look forward, supporting great bands in amazing venues, so keep up to date through our Instagram or Facebook – @glossiiofficial or through our website – www.glossii.com We’re going back into the studio soon to record our new juicy songs, so stay tuned and keep listening to Watching Me!
Huge thanks to Glossii for answering our questions!
