Gloss had played 43 shows at the time of their recording for The Local Show. That's a lot of live performances for a band that's only been around for one year. And that consistent exposure correlates with the amount of press the young quintet has received since forming.
When their song "Front Porch" hit the internet, it didn't take long for the Twin Cities music community to take notice, as well as the recently launched Forged Artifacts label which is now prepping the release of the band's debut EP. Mixing dream-pop and shoegaze, Gloss is filling a niche that not many others are experimenting with at the moment locally. The band is a prime example of an act who has really matured over the past few months in light of new-found love from listeners and critics.
For their debut in The Current studios, David Campbell talked with the band about their quick rise to the spotlight, recording with karaoke mics, who people think they sound like and day-of stage fright.
Songs performed: "Whose Name," "Front Porch" and "Moments"
