“Cautious” By Emarosa

Picture it: November, 2018 and Kentucky rockers, Emarosa, re-emerge with a new record on the way and an unexpected, but hardly unwelcomed, sonic freshness that catches some a little off-guard. Because with that horn-laced first single, “Givin’ Up,” from their new album, Peach Club (out 2/8 via Hopeless Records) and its 80s Duran Duran-esque album art motif, one thing was clear: this ain’t your brother’s Emarosa.

Less Dance Gavin Dance post-hardcore, more alternative pop/rock vibrance…just because they can.

Fast forward two months to Emarosa’s third release, “Cautious” which – although penned by frontman Bradley Walden while contemplating “sex after heartbreak” – is deliciously bursting with shimmering synths and continues to ring the alarm on the band’s new and uplifting (at least in tone) trajectory.

Emarosa will celebrate their new sound and the release of Peach Club with five dates scattered across the US: for more info, head to their official website.
