Blonde Roses blend alt grit and southern blues


User Avg

New Orleans rock outfit Blonde Roses blend alternative grit and southern blues to create a harmonious union.

Pulling inspiration from their strong Louisiana roots, they are also heavily influenced by the 60’s and 70’s and coin these decades as the backbone to their songwriting. If you’re a fan of Wolf Alice then I think you’ll like this five-piece.

The new single ‘Hush Now’ is a song that twists haunting poetry around the smooth velvet-lined vocals. Her voice is silky with a ragged edginess that complements the hard rock energy that you find on Wolf Alice’s slower tracks. The intro is nurturing, but we’re gradually thrown down a jagged staircase at the fall of the climax.

The band’s lead vocalist, Molly Mikhael, said: “My parents introduced me to incredible artists like Joni Mitchell and Simon and Garfunkel, among many others, at a young age.

“I grew up being inspired by singer/songwriters and the stories they told through their lyrics. It’s shaped me into the artist I am today. Making sure that the music we create says something is extremely important to us.”

With bold, sultry vocals atop powerful instrumentation, Blonde Roses is stronger than ever. Molly, Harry and Anthony, a group of lifelong friends, are paving their own path in the industry with a debut 5-song EP.

Blonde Roses are Molly Mikhael (vocalist), Harold Rosenberg (guitarist), Anthony Mikhael (drummer), Rocco Spanja (bassist) and Matthew McElveen (keys)
