NEW ORLEANS | MARCH 23, 2017: Blonde Roses, a New Orleans four-piece rock ‘n’ roll outfit, blends alternative grit and southern blues to create a harmonious union. Molly, Harry, Anthony, and Albert are a group of lifelong friends ready to set a stage for a longstanding career in music. Originally formed as a five-piece band known as The Wooden Wings in 2008, the group shifted and changed to Blonde Roses – the perfect balance between “sassy and feminine.”
Today Blonde Roses is proud to present their latest single, “Anymore” off their upcoming EP, Hell or High Water due out this Spring. The song is about having someone in your life that completely stripped you of yourself, leaving you feeling like a shell of your former self, and finding the strength to say enough is enough. It’s an anthem about taking the lowest point in your life, breaking free from it and not allowing your past to own you anymore. That person, that moment, isn’t worth living your life in fear. These scars aren’t something we should be ashamed of because they make us who we are. They make us beautiful. They remind us where we’ve been. They remind us that we’re better than that. The second you let your demons control you, they win – and the best form of revenge is finding your way back to yourself and letting everything that is beautiful about you shine.
Pulling inspiration from their strong Louisiana roots, they are also heavily influenced by the 60’s and 70’s and coin these decades as the backbone to their songwriting. With a little throwback mixed with personal strife, the band is set forth to deliver honest and real lyrics about overcoming life’s obstacles and gaining strength from destruction. The band’s fearless lead singer, Molly elaborated, “Even when things seem really tough, there’s always that light at the end of the tunnel that keeps you going. It’s up to you whether you run to it or stay in place. I want our fans to feel like they aren’t alone in feeling alone at times. But I want to them to also know that it’s going to be ok even if it doesn’t feel like it at the time. That there’s something bigger and better waiting for you if you look hard enough. Life isn’t always going to be easy, but it’s a blessing.”
Combining a certain rawness and a knack for creating songs that are vulnerable and relatable, Blonde Roses unleashed their debut single/video for “Bullet” exclusively with Huffington Post and Consequence of Sound. “Bullet” details the fragility and beauty of life – the circle of life, death, renewal, and birth. It’s about starting a new chapter, a rebirth, into your better self. Stemming from their powerful debut, Blonde Roses is gearing up for a brand new EP release ‘Hell or High Water’ due out this Spring.
