Chelsea Rose shares new single & video “Fallin'” via Under The Radar
“I never intended to write a spoken word song, but this one just came out that way, so I went with it. “Fallin'” tells the story of falling in love while out on the road; it tells the story of closeness, distance, longing, and an eventual ending of falling back into loneliness. Sometimes when I’m crushed and really going through heartbreak, writing is the only way to process and heal.” –Chelsea Rose

Chicago sludge lords PALE HORSEMAN are streaming their formidable new single “Exile” over at Invisible Oranges. Landing ahead of the split album shared with BUZZHERD, “Exile” brings an imposing atmosphere with a crushing sound.
“The song was written by Eric Ondo and he does lead vocals on that one. It was the first song we completed of the new batch of songs, and it’s been a band favorite ever since. It was written during and inspired by the lockdown phase of the COVID pandemic here in the Chicago area. Ultimately the lyrical content ended up being about multiple plagues that have wiped out large numbers of people over the centuries, and how mankind has responded to managing the spread of the plagues. It also touches on the level of care/lack of care given to the infected and dying individuals, including the disposal of the contaminated corpses.” – Andre Miguel Almaraz
