Their Bandcamp profile states that they are "Sentimental country music from Massachusetts," and that defines Rosie Porter & The Neon Moons perfectly. The band's latest single, "Pretty Western Shirt," has that perfect vintage country sound that we tend to go crazy for here at If It's Too Loud... The sentimental factor keeps it from being alt-country or outlaw country. Instead, this is a beautiful 70's style country song. It has that level of sheen to it from that era while still being much more country than pop. Plus, there's plenty of steel guitar here to give "Pretty Western Shirt" the kind of twang you don't usually hear from a New England band.
