"Americana is a fluid term in music, covering everything from country to blues, and it’s one that local roots-rockers Cold Roses have embraced and made their own. The group’s evolution over the past few years has been an impressive one. The modest 4-piece expanded to include a horn section, their live show was refined by playing just about every venue in Philly, and late last year the band’s maturation culminated in the release of their first full-length, No Silence In The City—and the title delivers in earnest. On this album, Cold Roses’ retro style is forged with modern attitude to establish their signature Americana blend. The Swollen Fox premiered the track “Someplace To Go” a few months back, and in it you can hear the charm and authenticity that’s threaded throughout the debut LP. When these songs are experienced live, it’s difficult to resist the dance floor."
