As previously reported, Omar RodrÃguez-López’s new project Bosnian Rainbows (also featuring Teri Gender Bender, Nicci Kasper, and Deantoni Parks) will release their self-titled, full-length debut on June 25th via Sargent House.
With this latest endeavor, RodrÃguez-López has moved away from the pounding post-rock he was known for with At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta, crafting “alternative pop” like the sensual “Torn Maps” and the dreamy “Turtle Neck”. With the album’s third single, “Morning Sickness”, RodrÃguez-López and Co. expand that formula to dizzying heights.
While Ms Gender Bender’s vocals sound as fragile and evocative as ever, the lads lay down this deliberate, hyper-inflated funk groove capped off by RodrÃguez-López’s guitar that sounds like a mythical serpent weaving through a cloud bank. But even with the sweltering sex appeal cranked to 11, the track subtly reveals cracks of post-rock grime and intensity, paying slight homage to RodrÃguez-López’s past while blazing a trail toward transcendent pop effervescence. Listen in below.
