In the latest tease for their third studio album, Down In Heaven, Twin Peaks have released another single off the album, "Holding Roses." The track is full of vibrant melodies without sacrificing an unexpected spaciness. There's a cool accompanying arrangement of brass and piano, and it's hard not to hum along the first time hearing it.
The pre-released tracks so far hint at a lineup of songs that will combine somber and light moments with more unhinged and gritty rock, and "Holding Roses" takes a turn for the former. It's a mellow and endearing breakup song, and really speaks for itself in just two minutes, but given how catchy those sing-along hooks are, it's one of those songs that sticks in the craw of your brain.
There's a certain chemistry about the tracks on the upcoming albums that gives the group a super-polished and carefully crafted sound, but that hasn't stopped them from keeping up with the lovable simplicity that their touch of vintage sounds helps create. The vocals are grittier and raspier than what's been released from this album so far, highlighting the way the band's multi-vocalist approach can captivate with a host of sounds.
