[PREMIERE] Roses and Revolutions – The Sound 

The 1975’s The Sound is the most extravagantly hooking single off of the Manchester band’s well received #1 album ‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It’. Its warm melody and Matt Healy’s ever charming voice deliver an irresistible glee to the florid song, one constructed with many scintillating bells and whistles. Rochester, NY based indie pop duo Roses and Revolutions strip the song’s gilded veneer away on a gorgeous new adaptation of The Sound, delivering a beautiful acoustic cover, a sincere and frank ballad that more heavily highlights the easily overlooked lovelorn torment of the song. Though it still bubbles over with catchy vibrancy and a vivid zip, this is a simple, tender, and pure The Sound. We have a guitar and a girl, pouring her heart out fervently. Alyssa Coco’s vocals are spotless. She is undoubtedly the captivating, breathtaking star of this bluesy, snappy acoustic pop affair. That voice and the cover’s accompanying gentle guitar strums sync harmoniously with the sounds of my own softly aching heart. Head over to Roses and Revolutions’ Soundcloud to listen to more the duo’s moving music.
