MOLDY ROSES: Self-titled: 7”

Sep 16, 2021

There’s a kind of cognitive dissonance that occurs between reading Moldy Roses’ lyrics and listening to them. Tracks like “I Hope I Fucking Die Soon,” are not light in subject matter, but you wouldn’t know it from the saccharine sweetness of their sound. It’s akin to Third Eye Blind’s hit song about crystal meth in the ’90s; if you don’t pay attention to the lyrics, these songs sound light and happy. Don’t take this as an endorsement. The kind of inoffensive songs that sound safe enough to play in the background at Target or the dentist’s office don’t have any traction with me. I’d rather be having my teeth drilled in silence. –Paul J. Comeau (Scrub It!)
