Pale Roses

Pale Roses

Pale Roses have been playing neo-folk since the mid 2000’s. Back to basics is their motto: acoustic guitar or bass, a bit of piano, classic songwriting. Do not expect orchestral or experimental parts! Up to now, there’s been none. Lyrics are usually inspired by History (first and second world wars), Mythology (Celtic, Norse or Greek), Occultism (Madame Blavatsky) or Fantasy («Pale Roses» was a short story by Michael Moorcock) and British murder ballads. The bands and albums that influenced Pale Roses are: Sol Invictus («Death of the West»), Fire+Ice («Birdking»), Death In June («Rose Clouds of Holocaust»), Current 93 («Soft Black Stars»), Strength Through Joy («The Force of Truth and Lies»). Of course, if Pale Roses are ready to pay their dues to the founders of the neo-folk genre, it is not forbidden to also mention Nick Drake, Nico or Richard Thompson (but without the virtuosity) as influences.
