Ezza Rose shares new single, “American Man,” via PopDust | New LP, No Means No, out 9/21
Portland’s dream rock / psychedelic pop band, Ezza Rose, are gearing up to release their forth album, No Means No, next Friday. The band shares their third single, “American Man,” via PopDust, who says, “The third single off the psychedelic pop band’s upcoming album No Means No (out September 21st) strays from the group’s soft folk roots. The seductive melodies give way to the raw frustration with how people do (or do not) understand when no means no.”
The band recently shared their second single, “Baby, Come Down,” via Culture Collide, and showed the incredible range this album encompasses. Culture Collide says, “While the band’s previous single [“No Means No”] is a biting post-punk demand, “Baby, Come Down” is a vintage dream pop ballad, straight from that aforementioned decade [the ’60s] we love so much. More the observation than a battlecry, the tune is a stripped and wistful take on society’s obsession with distraction.”
XXAIA – “Smile” (it just make you do that very thing)
XXAIA says of the song:
“Smile was born when I was going through a heavy, depressed, and anxious few months. It talks about the weight that so many of us feel, day-in and day-out. And how that pressure can bring out the most insane parts of you. But somehow, no matter how dark or deranged the world around you is, you have to keep the “everything is fine” illusion going. Maybeit’s delusional, or optimistic. Either way, you have to keep smiling.”
Multi-Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter India.Arie is back with a bit of musical enchantment with the official release of her new single “That Magic” featured on her forthcoming album WORTHY in February via Songbird/BMG.
