Description

Rose Windows are a tough band to pin down. Their influences include African band Tinariwen, Turkish musician Erkin Koray, and Frank Zappa. Throw in some folky, Native American flute and a lead singer who could probably do a convincing Grace Slick impression and you’ve got one of the most unusual and original bands to come out of Seattle in recent memory. If you’re fond of meandering sitar melodies paired with feral, Black Sabbath-inspired guitar, we recommend “Native Dreams,” but the appropriately-titled “Heavenly Days” is most representative of what you’ll hear on The Sun Dogs. With its warm harmonies and bright textures, this track will make you feel like frolicking outdoors, imagining that you’re surrounded by “red hills and green islands” instead of fallen leaves.
