Most bands out there are easy to define as one genre or
another and can be tucked away into a neat little box but NY's The Rosies, who were recently named Long Island’s Best Up and Coming New Band by The Long Island Press,
defy such easy classification, challenging listeners with its infectious melodies, powerful vocals and 3-part harmonies backed by driving, and at times dark and haunting, rock, blurring genre lines along the way.
Forming out of the ashes of indie rock outfit Mars 96, April Jimenez, along with guitarist Jenny Garay and bassist Brock Gibson, originally founded The Rosies 3 years ago as a three-piece group in order to focus on their vocal harmonies. Eventually, though, they added Eric Solomon on drums and lead guitarist Steve Goldstein, who also plays in The Unattended, to fill out their sound.
