Today, Philadelphia-based cinematic indie-folk outfit ROSU LUP have teamed up with PASTE MAGAZINE to release their brand new single “Rain/Glitter”. Paste said the band, “continue to impress us with their musical abilities. The track is smart, folksy pop that brings an irresistible feeling of hope."

 

“Rain/Glitter” glides in with a cold guitar line that embodies the shiny and fluid feel of its title. Every verse washes over the listener with the gentle melodies of vocalist Josh Marsh cutting through on the edge of in icy rasp. When the song crashes like a wave into its chorus, Marsh breaks into the catchy and memorable lines, “Everybody is waiting for the real thing/But the real things you can't touch," exemplifying the introspective lyrics penned by Marsh and bassist Jonathan Stewart.

Rosu Lup is the musical project of songwriters Stewart and Marsh, who kicked off their musical career with the well received 2016 LP, Is Anything Real. Often praised for their soaring vocal melodies and incorporation of orchestral instrumentation, the band crafted its debut Is Anything Real to be a lush collection, displaying their expertise with dynamic, diverse, and thoughtful song arrangements. The album was almost fully written when the band entered the studio, contrasting the approach taken on the new single. Stewart explains, “This time around we had the main structure of the song written, but a lot of the harmonies, lead guitar, and wurlitzer parts were worked out in the studio.”

 

The Deli described their sound, saying, “The tone of their music shifts from soaring Tom Petty stadium-style rock to blooming, wandering folk with lush arrangements that recall The Acorn and Lord Huron."

 

Being part of the infamous and uplifting music scene in Philadelphia, Rosu Lup have developed a devotion to building community through their art. “We've always hoped to be inclusive, and for the most part I think we're doing that,” says Stewart, “Our band is made up of a lot of really amazing musicians from various backgrounds and walks of life. We've befriended a lot of musicians and random folks throughout the country while touring. Music has the amazing ability of building bridges and we're thankful to have the opportunity to do what we do.”

Rosu Lup represents the more folky and ethereal side of the Philly music scene, working with hometown legends whose music they grew up with, such as Jonathan Low (The National/Sufjan Stevens), Brian McTear (The War on Drugs/Sharon Van Etten), and Lou Rogai (Lewis & Clarke) helped produce Is Anything Real, and drummer Chris Powell (Man Man) played drums for “Threads”. They’ve also hit the road with beloved artists The Districts and Eric Slick of Dr. Dog. Stewart recalls their time with The Districts enthusiastically, “The shows we played with them were some of the biggest crowds we've performed for. I remember looking out in the crowd and seeing people singing our songs. People were really attentive, the energy was amazing.”

 

Currently at work on new music, Rosu Lup will be touring throughout 2017. Their next show will be in Philadelphia at Boot & Saddle on July 1st (1131 S Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19147).
