THE BLEEDING ROSE, Melbourne's best original band, are about to release their fourth single - 'Freedom Stay,' through MusikandFilm Records, a major US label, for global mainstream broadcast on the back of their third release 'Look Inside of You', also through MusikandFilm Records from the EP 'REFRIED' to turn you on with a selection of fine original material penned by lead guitar / vocalist Vincent Elt.
Considered fundamentally to be a late 60s, early 70s group, the repertoire ranges from Irish folk (you read it right!) to heavy acid rock and includes funk, folk rock, pop and psychedelia, promising an aural and intellectual delight to the listener and offering poetic lyrical insights in the process.
"The music is written on a super personal level, inviting the audience to identify with each song as though it were written exclusively for them, which, in a way, is true, if the lyrics are taken on their own merit, otherwise, there is always the option of ignoring them and just digging the music itself," says Vincent Elt, principal songwriter and founder of the band.
"In essence, the music is simply a vehicle for the lyrics and we try to present the work as much as possible to reassure the listener that we are all on this journey together, without the usual bullshit attitudes associated with so called musicians these days. We are here to entertain, yes, but with substance."
