Animal Mood – “Rose’s Grave”


“Rose’s Grave” is a memorable new rocker from Animal Mood. The momentum is quickly established; visions of a decaying rose are set against pulsing bass and developing guitars. “I still love you,” the vocals produce a more smitten immersion, punctuated by wordless ooh-ing and twangy guitar affections. The contrast between adoration and darker, mortality-referencing engrossment stirs, and the “so lonely,” bridge is especially compelling — diversifying with enjoyably hooky precision. “Rose’s Grave” is a strong showing from Animal Mood.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
