MP3 At 3PM: James Rose

James Rose‘s relaxed, blissful “Simplicity” may make you feel like you’re somewhere on a tropical island, but his lyrics aren’t always as optimistic. The Los Angeles musician is an explorer who takes note of every moment passed, bringing us along on his journey—joyous or not. After three home-recorded EPs, Rose finally takes a sonic step forward with “Simplicity,” which was recorded at a commercial studio. Out June 3, the single (with b-side “Can’t Stop Dreaming”) comes just in time for the upcoming beach days and will be supported by a summer tour. Download and/or stream “Simplicity” now.
