Rising NY/LA artist Rodes Rollins weaves emotive songwriting with spaghetti western undertones and psychedelic flair and first impressed listeners with her debut single “Young & Thriving” released late 2016. Produced by Alex Goose (Kevin Gates, Weezer), the songtells the tale of the fleeting nature of beauty and youth with Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint on drums.
Rodes Rollins quickly followed her debut with “Wes Come Back,” a song about her first love. Drawing inspiration from Broken Bells and Ennio Morricone, “Wes Come Back” features drums by Matthew Compton of Electric Guest (also plays with Devendra Banhart & Rodrigo Amarante), the song tells the story of Wes, Rodes Rollins’ young love who endured a lot of hardship throughout his life.
Today she reveals her debut five-track EP “Young Adult” and a smoky third single “Feedback.” As a whole, “Young Adult” is a stirring coming-of-age tale brimming with melancholy and romance yet bursts with soul. “‘Young Adult’ is a collection of songs about some of the most formative experiences from my youth, all told from a nostalgic point of view,” Rodes Rollins says about the EP. “Someone recently referred to my music as ‘cowgirl poetry’, and I like that description. When I envision performing these songs, I’m at a campfire in the desert.”
