Fervent Roze Releases Full Length Debut Album - 'Charm & Wit'

(Dallas, Texas )

About 'Charm & Wit'

'Charm & Wit' is the new 14-track DIY album by Fervent Roze. Once a four-piece band, Fervent Roze is now a tight-knit, unique duo with a brand new sound. The album showcases what two determined musicians can create on their own terms.

The album was recorded in the duo's home studios (bedrooms)and on the road, in a Hotel room in Georgia, as the band hit the pavement for a songwriting tour focused to pushing their sound in a new direction. They call their home studio, "Roze Records."

The first track ," Stay Away" was the last song recorded prior to the band's change-up. Track two, "Movie Concept," represents the path "down the rabbit hole" moving from the end of "Stay Away" with strings and falling into distortion. This track is the beginning of the band's expansion into synths and diverse instrumentation.

Moving forward, the rest of the album is highly provocative showcasing soaring melodies and percussion driven beats. The use of synths, guitars, 80's sensibilities and sub bass lines showcase the band's new direction, breathing new life into their sound. Their latest single off the album, "Fears," describes how "we all have something under the surface, and with each decision, we come to realize the consequences. Who are we really?"

"If you were to try and compare our sound to others, it would fall in line with 30 Seconds to Mars,Twenty one Pilots, Nine Inch Nails, Billie Eilish, and Thrice. The song writing process was different for each song, but over all it would start with a chord progression. I would turn that chord progression into a beat. Then I would make it into a song and we would listen to the songs in car rides and at our studios and write lyrics to what we were feeling and what the songs were trying to say. What the instrumentals would make us reminiscent of. - Waylon Glover
