Residing in East Village, the pop project of Cults own Gabriel Rodriguez and Scarlett Stephenson-Connolly titled Hideout brings out delightful fizzing tales of the human heart’s trials and tribulations with off-kilter arrangements, colorful lyrics, and most importantly a dynamic vocal presence. With two releases and several singles out, Hideout has won the approval of critics and fans around the world; bands such as Ra Ra Riot and Overcoats, along with artists such as Frankie Rose, have come out as supporters.
Yesterday, Hideout shared their new song “Rose”. In support of the release, the duo also unveiled a claymation music video, directed by Jess Sweat. With the backbeats being punchy and flourishing hooks, “Rose” achingly continues to grant listeners an astounding array of sound. In regards to lyrics, Rodriguez explains, “This song came to fruition through contemplation of the past. No matter how imperfect a relationship may have been, time has the ability to let bitterness fade. Eventually, you find yourself viewing the past through rose-colored lenses.”
