Published Nov 17, 2014Prairie indie rock ensemble Rah Rah have an album called Vessels due out in March through Hidden Pony Records, and they're giving us a seasonally appropriate preview ahead of time with "Good Winter."
The song is classic Rah Rah, in that it features a raw and rocking mix of crunchy guitar riffs, fragile vocals and bittersweet lyrics full of nostalgic remembrances.
"This song is a romanticized reimagining of being a young adult in a small Canadian city," said frontman Marshall Burns in a statement. "The overly nostalgic tone is meant to underline the dichotomy between the 'good winter' described in the song and the reality of the harsh cold, boredom and loneliness that, in actuality, accompanies a typical winter (particularly in our hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan). The song aims to be a reminder, to ourselves as much as anyone, of the unique and positive aspects of those cold, long winter months."
Hear it below. Vessels was produced by the returning team of Gus Van Go and Werner F (Said the Whale, Hollerado).
