Cult of Youth "Roses"
Published Oct 16, 2014There's still a month to go before Cult of Youth give up their Final Days LP, but the Brooklyn quartet are giving listeners another taste of the set ahead of time with a stream of the stunning, strummed neo-folk piece, "Roses."
While pastoral acoustics figure big in the arrangement, the track eventually rumbles up into a whirlwind of jangled chimes, cloud-cracking whooshes of sound and the ragged baritone cries of leader Sean Ragon, here detailing and eyeballed bed of roses as "a cruel reminder of your sacrament."
It's a heady, heavy peek at what's to come from the group's self-professed "post-industrial Pet Sounds," which as previously reported apparently uses the sound of "real human bones." You can check it out below before the album lands November 11 via Sacred Bones.
