Review: ROSH – Mending Season β˜€οΈ

Sheffield’s very own ROSH has put out another incredible single, “Mending Season”! We’ve featured their music in the past on our The Wrap feature and we were so blown away by this one, we decided to do a lil one-off review for them.

Following the release of their previous single “This Is What You Asked For“, a politically-charged delicate and intricate tune pertaining to the fight for inequality and wealth distribution, they’ve returned with another fantastic single here which only shows how much of a force they’re to be reckoned with. 🀘 maintaining their signature sound, mixing elements of jazz and rock into an acoustic folk setting which creates a truly unique sound that is not only easy to listen to, but thought-provoking and melodic through the whole journey of the songs.

“Mending Season” starts with a soft melody played on ROSH’s acoustic guitar, and as it sweeps into the verse the drums calmly crash in and ROSH’s vocal falsetto sears above the track, almost like a wave flowing into the shore. You can really feel the emotion and intricacy put into this track, each element seems like it’s been placed with such care to ensure the atmosphere of the track is just right. 🌊 throughout the track, it builds and builds – yet so calmly, with violins and strings emerging to really pinpoint and solidify the melody of the song – as it travels to the final chorus, it’s almost a contained chaos, with so much going on in the soundscape of the track, but with every instrument working perfectly in tangent with one another to create something that is truly beautiful.

The lyrics are written about the pandemic – the sense of waiting, the uncertainty of the times in which we all experienced – the anxiety and stress that came with waiting upon every single announcement that was put out by the government and the discomfort of a complete shift in the balance of everyday life. ROSH says on Bandcamp that “It’s about the collective wound we have all suffered during this pandemic, where some have suffered more than most, but where we all have lost something. I was thinking of all the people I hadn’t seen in months who were hurting, and considering what it would take for all of us to collectively heal from the experience.” With lyrics such as “Cast as mutes in another fight, the subtle rite, even numbers can’t sanctify“; you can really see the quality of songwriting shining through here, not only are the lyrics a beautiful interpretation of such a strange time, but to still maintain vocal melodies of this calibre really puts ROSH as one to keep an eye out for here. 😊

Not only this, but the b-side to the single, a song called “Fated“; is truly a gorgeous tune in its own right! Continuing almost seamlessly from the a-side, it retains both the intimacy, delicate melodies and soft ambience of the previous track. We absolutely adore the songwriting here, it’s a discussion upon the fate of civilization – so eloquently put, and as we said before, melodically superb. There’s always something for us about songs that take deep questions and philosophical ideas and give the writer’s thoughts upon them. Well worth listening to both of these tracks! πŸ™Œ

you can find the full single on all streaming platforms (Spotify / Apple Music) and on Bandcamp as pay as you feel, also there’s a full music video for it over on YouTube. It’s definitely worth keeping an eye out for this artist; with an album on the way, we’re sure they’re destined for great things. 🍞

New FEATURE: The Wrap – May 2021 πŸ₯ͺ

We’ve got ourselves a BRAND NEW FEATURE. We were a lil fed up of having all these amazing music submissions and not having space for them, so we’ve put together a lil ‘end of month’ Wrap feature to be able to bring em straight to you. 🀘 there’s so much great music coming out, so many gigs, so many videos – AMAZING stuff from the scene. 🍞


Brand new video for the collaborative single “Your Time” from Abi Rose Kelly and Marcus Man – we’re massive fans of these guys. Such a great song, and the parallels in this video are just stunning. Fantastic work from them! 🀘 [Spotify / YouTube] [Recorded by Matchbox Productions]


New video from Nottingham-based Bassey – a lovely chap who runs a radio show, helps promote local music and is a fantastic musician. This tune ‘Hollow Man’ is a real delve from his usual, but it’s super top. The video is amazing too, such lovely storytelling in it, definitely worth watching this piece of art. [Spotify / YouTube]


HUGE HUGE HUGE track from Scottish punks PERMO. Driving riffs, mad distortion, angry vocals. Got me screaming ‘Matryoshka’ all the time. Love the second verse – a real testament to songwriting. These guys are gonna be massive πŸͺ [Spotify] [Courtesy of Disobedient Records]


Live video from the Myoto boys, for their debut single ‘Wanted Man’. They’re a real mellow, chilled, upcoming band from Manchester – we can’t wait to see what they’ve got planned. This tune is a proper summery anthem, definitely worth a listen! [Spotify / YouTube] [Recorded at Dock10 Studios]


FANTASTIC new music video from one of our faves, Tay Temple. Think burning hearts, lovely guitar melodies, and above all, a relentless desire to feel better and move on. A massive positive anthem for all those in need right now. You can never go wrong with our Tay πŸ’« (ps that guitar riff. Jordi, stop it. you’re too good) [Spotify / YouTube] [Recorded by Matchbox Productions]


Absolutely insane debut single from Peacock Method. Super 80s, super groovy, super sunny. Expect to see these guys on stages soon! Really looking forward to what they’ve got planned for the future! (Ps, this video is lush as anything. [Spotify / YouTube] [Directed by Bloody Bandit Productions]


Scottish punks The Riot Vans put out a proper banger here. That intro riff is banging, and then the driving riffs throughout, drums balancing it all, and then so much energy throughout. Definitely worth a listen here, and we love the artwork. 🀘 [Spotify] [Courtesy of Disobedient Records]


Just SIMPLY heavenly. Toria Wooff is one of our favourite artists on the scene right now, a lovely lovely girl with bucketfuls of talent. We LOVE the 60’s country-folk feel here, kudos to Sloe Flower Studio for the work on this! Yet another classic in the Toria discography. Think June Carter and Stevie Nicks, but they’re in lovely sunny Bolton. One of the best! 🍷 [Spotify]
