Born from the ashes of early 90's post-punk outfit Samuel (Art Monk Construction), Rosa Chance Well began as an acoustic project between members Vanessa Downing and Dean Taormina in Washington, D.C. After relocating to Boston in '96, the two longtime friends culled inspiration slowly but surely from dreary winters, requisite tumultuous relationships, and dead-end retail jobs followed by late nights at the local rock club where they forged friendships and witnessed some of the best performances by now-legendary indie bands. Their sparse home recordings eventually blossomed into a charming, layered full length album (Kimchee Records) after engineer/producer Andy Hong heard a couple of their songs and convinced the pair to spend time in his studio. Featuring the incredibly talented rhythm section of Karate (Jeff Goddard and Gavin McCarthy) and a guest performance by Chris Brokaw (Come, The New Year, Thurston Moore Group), Rosa's breezily stirring debut roams non-linear pop territory with surefooted sophistication and a gently nuanced, low-key appeal. The 2001 self-titled release was met with critical acclaim and strong college radio play, followed by a tour and another batch of recordings in 2004. Hardly prolific but creatively persistent, the pair is content to take their time in between day jobs & dog walks to continue mining the New England landscape for enough material worthy of a second album.
Lyrics:I see the bad moon arising?I see trouble on the way?I see earthquakes and lightning?I see those bad times today Don't go around tonight?Well it's bound to take your life?There's a bad moon on the rise I hear hurricanes a blowing?I know the end is coming soon?I fear rivers over flowing?I hear the voice of rage and ruin Well don't go around tonight?Well it's bound to take your life?There's a bad moon on the rise Hope you got your things together?Hope you are quite prepared to die?Looks like we're in for nasty weather?One eye is taken for an eye Well don't go around tonight?Well it's bound to take your life?There's a bad moon on the rise Don't come around tonight?Well it's bound to take your life?There's a bad moon on the rise
