Queen of Roses

About Queen of Roses

Some nights just work: You’re feeling confident, you get a buzz on, and suddenly you’re the life of the party. Queen of Roses is about those other nights…When the mass of the crowd equals the loneliness you feel, squared. When your sense of worth is slowly drowning in alcohol, and you’re wondering why you ever went out in the first place. It’s written in first-person as you’re sitting there watching people talk and smile at each other, and you want to go home but, for some reason, you can’t.

“I wanted it to sound dry and intimate like a conversation going on inside your head. We dubbed the acoustic guitars, and added up to six layers of airy vocals, which adds to the eeriness of it all.”
– Horrse
