MP3: Therapies Son – Rose Red Rose

Stereogum’s joking description of Therapies Son‘s singer seriously made me laugh out loud. In a recent post on the project Stereogum called him the “Indie Shy Ronnie” – making reference to the absolutely hysterical SNL skit featuring Rhianna and Andy Samberg as Shy Ronnie [WATCH VIDEO].

True – His vocals hover barely above a whisper but almost have an Antony & The Johnsons quality to them. The track picks up with swells of warbled keys that project a sense of a slightly deviant childlike glee and suddenly you’re really intrigued.

Then there’s the video for the same track – all I can say is WOW. It has some of the most whacked out imagery in a video I can recall ever seeing. Seriously don’t watch if you just ate lunch.

I’d be interested to see where Therapies Son are headed in the coming months. There’s something in their music that reminds me a lot of Ariel Pink‘s earlier work.
