Chapel of Roses – “Cast out to Sea”


Nashville-based band Chapel of Roses unveil a compelling sound on new single “Cast out to Sea,” melding hypnotic rock and pop appeal alongside soaring vocal ascensions. “The journey makes us laugh and cry,” the spirited vocals let out at one point, aptly capturing the track’s themes — focused on rebirth, and experiencing life itself alongside the importance of family and friends.

Formed in the mid ’80s, Chapel of Roses broke up following a stream of successful tour dates and critical acclaim, though re-formed in 2011 — when singer Chris Kelley asked the members of Chapel of Roses to collaborate on songs. Now, they emerge with a new single in “Cast out to Sea,” showcasing a delightful rock sound that spans from anthemic rock heights — “I’m far away,” — to more psychedelic introspection. Chapel of Roses’ own rebirth is a smashing success with “Cast out to Sea.”

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
