Rose Hotel's forthcoming debut LP, "I Will Only Come If It’s A Yes," offers a polished, full-band sound, which is a striking departure from the lo-fi, bedroom origins of Reynolds’ first recordings under the moniker.
The album was recorded and produced over the course of 3 months by Graham Tavel at his West Atlanta home studio, where Reynolds spent spare time between jobs tracking, recording, and mixing with Tavel.
Sonically, the record is a scattershot batch of material, from “10K,” the record’s shoegaze tinged opener, to the 1960s girl group-inspired “Would You Believe Me,” to rollicking highway rocker “Running Behind.” Rose Hotel displays an accomplished sonic progression on “I Will Only Come If It’s A Yes”.
Reynolds’ vagabond spirit heavily influences her storytelling, which dissects crumbling relationships and the disorienting feelings of striking out on your own.
