The Roseline (uttalas "rose like the flower, line like a straight line") är ett band från Lawrence, Kansas USA. Efter en rad uppmärksammade album har de en gedigen låtskatt och de har profilerat sig som ett av de bästa banden i kategorin heartland rock/americana, Vilket betyder rak, omedelbar rock med countryinfluenser och melodier som går rätt in i kropp och själ. Grundaren och låtskrivaren Colin Halliburton har utvecklat The Roseline till en något angeläget, ett band som berör. I februari ger The Roseline ut sitt åttonde album "Keystone of the Heart" och de lyckliga som fått tjuvlyssna skriver under på att det är den i särklass bästa plattan hittills. Så det blir ett spelsuget band med ett gäng nya bra låtar som återvänder till Skandinavien våren 2024!
The Roseline (pronounced rose like the flower, line like a straight line) is a band from
Lawrence, Kansas USA. Seven albums into their career, they have crafted a songbook
that is at once familiar and singular. Founder and principal songwriter, Colin Halliburton,
began the project as an acoustic folk trio, and it has since evolved into the five-piece heartland rock band of its current form. Kind foreign press and high charting on the Euro Americana Chart ('Lust for Luster', 'Blood', 'GOOD/GRIEF', and 'Constancy' all charted in the top ten), led to a deal in the Benelux with Dutch label, King Forward Records. The band also released one album, 'Vast as Sky' (2012), with the Bay Area label Ninth Street Opus. With those exceptions aside, the project has largely existed as a truly DIY independent venture.
The Roseline has had the good fortune of landing sync placements in indie movies and
major network television shows such as ABC's 'Nashville' and 'Resurrection', as well as
USA's 'Queen of the South', Netflix's ‘Virgin River', and MTV's ‘Teen Mom'.
The band's work has been featured on/in NPR, Pop Matters, American Songwriter, The
Bluegrass Situation, and No Depression, among others. Halliburton also performs solo
under The Roseline moniker and has embarked on two European tours thus far.
The band recently returned from their second tour in Scandinavia with help from Rootsy Music (Jason Isbell, American Aquarium, John Prine, Justin Townes Earle) and will return
twice more in 2024.
Their 8th LP, Keystone of the Heart, arrives February 2nd, 2024 and is arguably their most distilled, elegant, and emotionally resonant album of their career. Halliburton describes it as "a protest record which protests the dissolution of a marriage, the slog of existence in late stage capitalism, and grotesque hatred and violence." While this certainly sounds clunky and heavy-handed, Halliburton knows when to inject some levity and humor. Songs which appear dour and grim in the early verses always seem to find some hope and light by their end. Keystone of the Heart offers pure aural aloe for troubled times.
The Roseline produces minimalistic and windswept Americana indicative of their Heartland roots. There's something more to their portfolio than another set of strong contributions to the alt-country scene.Av Pop Matters
