Oh, Rose share new video/single ‘The Call’

It takes a rare kind of leadership and perseverance for a band to make it to the 10-year mark, and that’s why Olympia, Washington-based group Oh, Rose has so much to celebrate this June. Alongside the release of the second single off their upcoming album Dorothy (due out this Sept) comes both a music video containing footage from their 2021 tour with Future Islands, as well as a limited-edition cassette release of their debut EP That Do Now See through the Portland-based label Antiquated Future. Front woman Olivia Rose, drummer Liam Hindahl, bassist Vin Christopher, keyboardist Stevie Smith and guitarist Laith Scherer make up this five-piece indie-pop outfit. ‘The Call’ is a single that speaks to those stuck in dead-end jobs feeling the calling of their creative tendencies, and proves to be a dreamy and nostalgic tribute to keeping the hope alive.

“At the start of Covid I got stuck working at a weed grow,” Olivia says. “We were considered essential workers and I ended up working there for three years. I didn’t see the rest of the band for almost a year. My days were spent covered in kief dust in a fluorescent room and finishing my degree in the evenings, so music had pretty much stopped. I think this song became my mantra to remember that it wouldn’t last forever.”

The press photos are an homage to the original EP artwork and shot at The Guest House, the location where they recorded their first EP on a 4-track in the basement. It was a former musical hub whose community formed the original members of the band. For the music video, Olivia chose to feature a montage of footage from their previous tour with Future Islands in preparation for another upcoming September run with them. “These last ten years have shaped life as we know it,” adds Olivia, “and this life is a pretty good one. Here’s to ten more!”
