Adelyn Rose Strikes Off on Tour, Exclusive EP in Hand

Don’t think of it as a test run, but folk-rockers Adelyn Rose are just getting back from a three-week East Coast tour (with pals Softly, Dear) where they’ve been pedaling a secret little EP, exclusively available at live shows. Titled Summering, the seven-track EP was home-recorded, the majority of songs brand new – as in recorded within the last month or thereabouts. It has dual intentions though: Firstly, it’s something new to sell on tour, and secondly, the bones of these songs will eventually build out a future full-length record alongside some yet-to-be-written tracks. Not quite a side-step, Summering mixes Adelyn Rose’s familiar folk with some of the band’s most ambitious intermittant ambience to date. You can add to that a snowy, new video for “Riot” – an Ordinary Fantasy standout shot by Jesse Johnson that’s equal parts chilly and trippy, and you’ll see how this band is making the most of their time away from home.
