Viva Voce are back with Rose City, an album they wrote, arranged, and recorded themselves all in one furious month choosing not to deliberate over every little thing but living purely in the moment musically and lyrically. Immersing themselves in sonic experimentation, it was truly spontaneous and cathartic. The result is an angular, immediate record that pulses with the palpable urgency of a band yearning for a return to the vagabond life of the working, touring musician a mode in which Viva Voce is truly at home.
