Sara Bug - "Rosebank"

Sara Bug's latest is a mixture of some of our favorite sounds, but done in a way we haven't quite heard before. Bug describes herself as the "World's finest southern-kitsch artist. born in Mississippi, raised in Louisiana, stuck in Nashville." Her new single, "Rosebank," mixes the indie rock sensibility of Stef Chura with the alt-pop of Phoebe Bridgers with some Dolly Parton thrown in. It's the kind of song that blends all the styles in a way so that it's not quite any of them, and is just its very own thing. 

Sara Bug explains her new song: 

"Rosebank was written about the joy and calm I feel when I’m on my motorcycle. Everything else in the world disappears and I can think clearly when I'm taking time to myself, cruising around. The song was written when I was still a beginner. Every night I would drive down this long, curvy road in Nashville called Rosebank for practice. During a hard emotional time in my life, the nightly rides ended up being really therapeutic for me."

You can listen to "Rosebank" below. The song is available now as a single via EggHunt Records with an LP due out this spring. For more on Sara Bug, check out the artist's Facebook and Instagram.
