Blonde Roses, a New Orleans rock ‘n’ roll outfit, blends 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.
The band’s lead vocalist, Molly, states: “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.”
The band is gearing up for the release of their brand new single and visualette, “Hush Now”, which can be viewed below. “Hush Now” is about the loss of innocence and naivety and, in a way, how absolutely terrifying that can be. You realize at a certain point that you’re growing up in a world that’s really broken and, in that moment, you feel a certain kind of weight come down on you that you’ve never felt before.
It’s a conversation between your present self and your inner child – a tug and pull between wanting to protect whatever naivety that still remains while also realizing that you have to look outside of yourself and open your eyes to the injustice happening in the world around you.
