Roses make music that seem like it is forever frozen in a dreamy high school prom in a John Huges film and that is why I love them so much. The line "You have fallen in love with the sound of your own voice"delivered with a sharp icy Bryan Ferry-esque coolness sticks in my head as I listened to "It's Over" which I rediscovered after finding the video directed with a trippy flowery loveliness by Cassandra Lee Hamilton.
On a past blog post about Roses [A three-piece band from Los Angeles made up of Marc Steinberg (Lead Vocals / Keys / Beats), Victor Herrera (Bass), and Abe Vigoda's Juan Velasquez (guitar).] I described their music as a kind of dance rapturous mix of romantic new wave, indie pop and post punk sounds evoking a sense of nostalgia and high school crushes.
