Stream the debut G.L.O.S.S. demo

Eric Phipps

G.L.O.S.S. stands for Girls Living Outside Society’s Shit. They are a five-piece hardcore punk band from Olympia, Washington. On January 16, they posted a demo on Bandcamp that in recent weeks has exploded across certain corners of the punk world. Understandably so; their music is urgent and vital. In five short songs, they lay out personal histories, a rejection of masculinity, a rejection of societal expectation. Ultimately the most important words needed to understand the power of a band like G.L.O.S.S. are their own lyrics: “MEDICALIZED UNDER THE KNIFE,” begins “Masculinity Artifice.” “EXPECTED TO BE GRATEFUL / TRAPPED IN THE LENS/OF THE CIS-GAZE/JUST ANOTHER SAD TRANSEXUAL/MASCULINITY/WAS THEIR ARTIFICE/RIP IT AWAY/FEMININITY/ALWAYS THE HEART OF US!/TRANS GIRLS BE FREE!”

The G.L.O.S.S. demo is out on cassette via Not Normal Tapes. You can also stream it on Bandcamp below; we recommend doing so with the lyric sheet pulled up. Tour dates are below as well.
