LA’s Rose Dorn will release their debut album Days You Were Leaving (Bar None Records) on August 24. Today they reveal the excellent single “Collar” which reveals itself slowly as singer Scarlet Knight’s vocals quietly build into a song that oozes with charm.
The band notes “’Collar’ is the first song we wrote as a band so of course it occupies a special place in our hearts. It’s about a bunch of disparate moments and emotions that feel largely connected by one central idea: darkness can and often does seep into even the most pleasant experiences in our lives—we may find something beautiful one moment and disagreeable the next, even when that thing has remained essentially the same. While this should speak to the boundless agency we have in the way we perceive our realities, it more often leaves us feeling completely out of control.”
Rose Dorn is Scarlet, Jamie Coster and Joey Dalla Betta. Scarlet just finished high school so they are now ready to go full-time with the release of the album and their first proper tour. The band previously announced their first run of dates in support of the album and have now confirmed new shows including one at Los Angeles’ Hi Hat on August 26. The tour also hits Oakland, Seattle and Portland and all dates are below.
Leading to today’s release, the band have shared two additional singles, “Champ” and “Shaking.” Rose Dorn take elements of bedroom rock, twangy desert gaze, and melancholic California pop and create music that is all their own.
Since their inception they have teamed up with engineer Phil Hartunian [Follies] to record not only the forthcoming Days You Were Leaving but also the band’s first EP, 2017’s Speak Later and last year’s Call Her EP. The ten songs that make up the album examine a nebulous yet transformative period of life where things change whether you like it or not.
