“Arguably the band’s strongest offering to date, it has all the makings of a bonafide pop hit.” – Indie Current
Alyssa Coco and Matt Merritt, the Upstate indie-pop duo known as Roses & Revolutions partner with Indie Current to share their latest single “Get That Feeling” (out today via Nettwerk Records) from their forthcoming EP (details TBA).
“’Get That Feeling’ is about the array of emotions that coincide with knowing someone for a while. There are the good, the bad, and if you’re lucky, the ones that take you out of this world,” says Coco.
As members of a bigger multi-instrumental band, Coco and Merritt recognized in each other a kindred spirit and in 2014, Roses & Revolutions was formed. In the fall of 2016, Coco and Merritt released “The Pines,” a rallying point for fans at shows as well as online with features at Paste, Indie Shuffle, All Things Go, Yahoo! Music and others. Spotify Canada discovered “The Pines,” added it to a playlist, and it took off, eventually reaching #2 on the Viral Chart. From the viral success of “The Pines,” the duo booked opening gigs with accomplished acts like Kaleo, K Flay, Marian Hill, Kevin Garrett, The Head and the Heart, Lucius, as well as their own headlining shows.
If you’re in the LA area, be sure to catch the band for their School Night! showcase on February 19 at Bardot.
“Coco’s breathy voice drips into the rhythmic creases between guitar notes and subdued hi-hats, giving this one an eerie and melodic feel to it. The desolate production provides a soundtrack to seclusion; emphasizing the escapist attitude of the lyrics.” – Indie Shuffle
