Rodes Rollins – Wes Come Back
Young & Thriving was such a great debut single, but it’s through her sophomore offering Wes Come Back that American songstress Rodes Rollins is proving to be a real deal. Inspired by her first love, Rollins added a sort of psychedelic vibe to this otherwise very calm ballad, which also echoes the spaghetti-western soundtracks of the late ’60s.
Speaking of Wes, she said: “For a long time, during our adolescent years, our lives were very much intertwined. I think that’s why it’s so easy for me to write songs about him. There’s a lot of raw and real material for me to talk draw upon. I don’t feel that way about all of my songs. But when I write about him, I feel like I’m genuinely telling a story.”
Young & Thriving and Wes Come Back are both taken from Rodes Rollins’ upcoming debut EP Young Adult.
