RIYL: garage-tinged pub rock

Label: Greenway Records

Brooklyn rockers Las Rosas are keeping the momentum cooking after last year’s Shadow By Your Side LP caught some buzz.  Titled Day Sleeper, the boys have assembled two new tracks with fellow New Yorkers Greenway Records. While they’re keeping their rock and roll roots close to their hearts, their sound is evolving into some interesting new territories.

Diamond Dust burns with the earnestness of early Dire Straits, building on a canonical ‘road song’ rhythm and peaking with a pint glass-shaking guitar solo that’d make even the loudest barflies shut the hell up and pay attention. Color Blue saunters with Strokesy strides and Stonesy swagger, the kind of b-side that just feels wrong being labeled a b-side.  I’m liking this new direction and can’t wait to hear where they take it!  Grab a gorgeous hand-poured 7″ from Greenway after the ‘buy’ link and listen to both cuts below.
