Oh, Rose - "25, ALIVE"

Olympia, WA is one of those cities that doesn't seem to have any bad (or even mediocre) bands. Oh, Rose are keeping with the tradition of the city. "25, ALIVE" is filled with anger, hurt, but is somehow still uplifting. As singer Olivia Rose explains: 

I was 25 when my mother died and I was angry and brokenThis song is me saying I don’t want this anger because I know what it does to a person if they hold onto it.

"25, ALIVE" is alt-rock in the classic Northwestern sense. It's fuzzy guitars and emotion with plenty of quiet/loud/quiet transitions. But it also has a groove and a sense of joy and moving on, so it's not all Washington state depression.

You can watch the video for "25, ALIVE" below. While My Father Sleeps, the new album from Oh, Rose, will be out August 23 on Park the Van. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Oh, Rose, check them out on Facebook and Twitter. Current tour dates are below the video.
