Overview: As a high-energy, electronic power pop/rock duo with a six-foot nine-inch front man, ROSEDALE sure is hard to miss. Tight drums, thick leads, catchy vocals, unreal performances accompanied by a spaced-out light show and some rock Ã¢â‚¬Ëœn roll attitude all boil down to one word: memorable. Yes, Rosedale exists solely to shatter your expectations and raise the bar.
The band doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t share much in common with popular two-piece rock acts that one might immediately deploy as parallels (hint: DFA 1979, MGMT, The Black Keys, et al.). Instead, ROSEDALEÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s attitude, energy and aesthetic signal the days when DIY meant exactly that: no trendy posturing, no playing it safe, just all-out unapologetic passion. Their strong songwriting evinces post-hardcore and indie rock influences from bands like The Ataris, Box Car Racer, Moneen and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, though they posses both a harder edge and snazzy electronic shimmer that excites danceability.
