April 11, 2017 BY Nettwerk
Alyssa Coco and Matt Merritt, the Upstate indie-pop duo known as Roses & Revolutions release their Nettwerk debut single “Moment” (out now).
“Moment is a collection of stories and emotions that we were experiencing during the time we wrote it. The song is about remembering that moment that started everything. That time that you want to get back to, where everything was right and made sense,” 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 and today nears one million streams. From the viral success of “The Pines,” the duo booked opening gigs with accomplished acts like Marian Hill, Kaleo, The Head and the Heart, Lucius, as well as their own headlining shows.
“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
“[Moment] grasps onto their folk roots but pushes the boundaries into feverish, percussion-based electro-pop…Rising out of the ashes of quaking thumps and dizzying swirls, the pair find their way.” – Popdust
“[The Pines] is an ethereal and serene slice of indie pop perfection which has us drifing away to wildly imaginative places.” – Wonky Sensitive
