When Philly songwriter Rosali Middleman isn’t fronting the psych-rock outfit Long Hots, she’s busy making solo tunes in a different vein as just Rosali. Next month, she’ll release her second solo album, Trouble Anyway, and the folk rock first single “Lie To Me” is a great glimpse of what’s ahead for the musician.
A raw rock anthem with a bit of country edge and the occasional soft and shimmering harmony, “Lie To Me” defies categorization in the way Rosali does best, building slowly in sweeping, guitar-driven sounds. According to Spinster Sounds, Rosali wrote the songs on Trouble Anyway as a way of finding empowerment, and explores themes from power to self-doubt to love and anger.
Trouble Anyway is out July 6 and Rosali will play Johnny Brenda’s on July 11. Find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
