In the world of jangle rock, there are many source points to revisit from The Feelies, R.E.M. and The dB’s all the way to the present with Real Estate and Cloud Nothings. Yet while certain unmentioned genres have had more than its share of adulation, this timeless snappy guitar oriented pop – we can never quite have enough of. Enter Los Angeles post-Americana band The Rose Petals, a hypnotically jangly outfit who crack the peppy guitar strums with their own brand of irritated swing kick and jumpy beats. The four piece have are announcing today the release of their debut albumAmerican Grenadine, out on 4/23/21.
With the announcement Glide is premiering the infectiously raw and sugary “Chesapeake Leopard” a throwback jangle anthem about Dolley Madison, wife of former U.S. President James Madison of all people.
