Rossi | Your God

February 20, 2013 at 12:43 pm Leave a comment

The Nashville duo of Kendall Morgan and Thom Donovan (aka Rossi) may have taken a little less than a year between the release of their last single, but the wait is worth it. Last year Rossi released two songs, one of which was the beautifully gloomy “Ossetia”, and now they’re back with a new song, “Your God”. It seems the duo have developed a few traits of their own in a matter of three total songs. One is that the band gravitates toward deeply emotional subject matters. “Your God” doesn’t veer off track of that. It feels like a haunting: “A room full of strangers with familiar faces / Hoping someone will chase your shadow away.” Also, the songs have grown more musically complex, with arrangements that are multi-instrumental and layered, like a cross between folk sensibility (“War Within”) and the more baroque quality of the “Your God”. Morgan’s vocals in newest song made me think of Sarah Jaffe. She sings passionately, swelling as the music does, and falling away into a kind of quietude during the pretty ebbs of the song. Follow Rossi at facebook, tumblr, and twitter. — David D. Robbins Jr.
