Americana and folk is one of the most faked aesthetics in music, often lumped in with country and littered with cliché foot stomping and the infamous millennial whoop. However, when it is done in earnest, the sound can bring perspective to some of the most intimate emotions felt as humans. Morning Haze, the debut album from Brooklyn quartet New Rose, is one that falls in the latter.

Saturated in earthy hues and golden light, the album has revealed itself as an ideal companion on a road trip or while lounging around on a lazy Sunday, while triggering flashbacks to the pedal steel heavy, deep-rooted country music that was always present at the dancehalls to the local tavern’s jukebox of our youth in small town USA. Expert musicianship and honest lyrics fit like that favorite pair of broken in jeans falling somewhere between Willie Nelson, Whiskeytown, and even ever-so-subtly hints of The War on Drugs (see standout track “Waiting On Me”), if you are looking for touchstones. Whatever the description, this is just well-crafted music existing not just as a representation of 2017, but of decades gone by and those that lie ahead certain to stay in the rotation beyond its release date.

Morning Haze is out this Friday, June 30th. Grab a physical copy courtesy of Broken Circles.
