Today, Philadelphia-based cinematic indie-folk outfit ROSU LUP have teamed up with PASTE MAGAZINE to release their brand new single “Rain/Glitter”.
“Rain/Glitter” glides in with a cold guitar line that embodies the shiny and fluid feel of its title. Every verse washes over the listener with the gentle melodies of vocalist Josh Marsh cutting through on the edge of in icy rasp. When the song crashes like a wave into its chorus, Marsh breaks into the catchy and memorable lines, “Everybody is waiting for the real thing/But the real things you can’t touch,” exemplifying the introspective lyrics penned by Marsh and bassist Jonathan Stewart.
Rosu Lup is the musical project of songwriters Stewart and Marsh, who kicked off their musical career with the well received 2016 LP, Is Anything Real. Often praised for their soaring vocal melodies and incorporation of orchestral instrumentation, the band crafted its debut Is Anything Real to be a lush collection, displaying their expertise with dynamic, diverse, and thoughtful song arrangements. The album was almost fully written when the band entered the studio, contrasting the approach taken on the new single. Stewart explains, “This time around we had the main structure of the song written, but a lot of the harmonies, lead guitar, and wurlitzer parts were worked out in the studio.”
