Dark and solemn guitar tones support an angelic lead female vocal that subtly warbles with a confident vibrato. The songs picks up and the band goes into a triplet filled breakdown that is inspiring and comparable to acts like Wolf Alice. The standouts from “Hush Now” are for sure the lead vocalist and the drummer who combined take a hard rock song and draw influence from mainstream music in a digestible way that transcends genre while remaining loyal to a hard rock sound.

“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.”
Starting strong, Blonde Roses exclusively released their debut single ‘Bullet’ on Consequence of Sound , followed by an accompanying music video directed by John Paul Summers on Huffington Post . The band has set forth to deliver honest, raw lyrics about overcoming life’s obstacles and gaining strength from destruction. Molly elaborated, “Even when things seem really tough, there’s always that light at the end of the tunnel that keeps you going. It’s up to you whether you run to it or stay in place. I want our fans to feel like they aren’t alone in feeling lost at times. I want them to know that it’s going to be ok even if it doesn’t feel like it at the time. That there’s something bigger and better waiting for you if you look hard enough. Life isn’t always going to be easy, but it’s a blessing.””
