son little’s “hey rose” is the soundtrack to fall

September 20, 2019

There’s something about Son Little’s “Hey Rose” that just feels like the perfect fall song. From the chilled out vibe, the hints of mystery at the edges, the angular hook, and the guitar line that switches measure-to-measure from a soul groove to a flamenco lick to driving alt-rock, it all just vibrates the air at the exact right frequency for the current temperature. Son Little has long excelled at making music that nods to retro style without sounding like a recreation and “Hey Rose” is a natural evolution, using the building blocks of the past to make something totally new. Stay tuned for the new EP invisible due out October 11th. In the meantime, it’s a lovely day for a Climate Strike. Get out in the streets while you jam out to this one.
