Roses pack a dramatic punch into their debut EP for Group Tightener. Starting off “Florence Girls,” the band layers shimmering synthesizers, New Order-inspired basslines, ex-Abe Vigoda guitarist Juan Velasquez’s brittle, crunching guitars, and Marc Steinberg’s David Byrne-esque vocals over a breezy, new wave drum machine beat. “The Fog” softens things up in a spacey ballad reminiscent of David Bowie’s early ’80s experimental pop. “Icicle” finds the band traversing through woozy new romantic waters, while highlight “It’s Over” introduces a stuttering beat and staccato vocals, while the band tears through a shiver-inducing, gorgeous arrangement. It’s just a taste of what’s to come, but Dreamlover already has us hungry for a lot more from Roses.
