Hello, Blue Roses – Shadow Falls

Right at this moment in time I can’t think of a song as soothing and comforting as ‘Shadow Falls’ by Hello, Blue Roses. Gilded with perfect boy/girl harmonies it nonetheless proves to be a tad unsteady, somewhat like a heart that has just been robbed of affection. Dan Bejar should be familiar already as he fronts Destroyer and is well respected for his collaborations with the New Pornographers. Sydney Vermont is his girlfriend and together they make sweet music. Their first work together was conceived in Spain (far away from their Vancouver home) and goes by the somewhat longish yet perfectly encapsulating ‘The Portrait Is Finished And I Have Failed to Capture Your Beauty…’. ‘Shadow Falls’ has a cinematic sweep despite the soft delivery and is perfectly angled to soundtrack a thousand moments of introspection. You’ll never need to be alone with this on your player. KD
