Dosser- “Joy Thief “

We think we just heard the next great thing in rock . Remember the name – Dosser- remember the song “Joy Thief”

Dosser-Zack Pohuski

Baltimore , MD indie rockers Dosser have crafted a sonically melodic driven masterpiece. We hear shades of 90’s favorite HUM as well as early Foo Fighters .

As much as they draw comparisons to others Dosser is refreshingly very much carving out their own explosive and memorable sound.

Commenting on “Joy Thief” Dosser’s Bret Lanahan (guitar, vocals) says: “Since I was a kid I’ve struggled greatly with crippling anxiety and depression. I didn’t understand when I was younger what either of those things were and always thought something was wrong with me or I had something bad inside me making me feel this way. I used to have this kind of weird day dream a lot that if I could just open up my chest and let whatever was inside of me that was making me feel so terrible just spill out, maybe I would feel better.It wasn’t a bloody scene or anything like that, I guess it was just the only way my younger brain could picture getting rid of bad thoughts. As I got older and had a better understanding of what mental illness looked like I was able to get help in the form of medication. The song goes back and forth with the feeling of being trapped in one of two corners that I think are pretty common in people trying to deal with or treat mental illness. Either you treat it with medication and get to a point where you feel almost nothing at all and totally empty, or just deal with it and have such intense feelings that you can hardly bare it. Finding a release is the hardest thing to do. The lyrics are fairly simple but they hold a great weight for me.”
