Lorain’s debut LP Through Frames has been marinating for a while now, but the woozy Americana outfit has offered some sneak-peeks leading up to its September release. Tonight, the band drops their single “Rose Window,” a hypnotic cross-section of singer/songwriter Erik Emanuelson’s poetic verse and attention to song dynamics. Eschewing the “epic crescendo” vibe, as Emanuelson puts it, of the previous incarnation of the band—Grand Lake Islands—“Rose Window” unfolds slowly and purposefully, not unlike the flower from which the song takes its name, allowing the delicate dance of keys, guitars, bass, and drums plenty of room to bloom. Vocal harmonies are bulls-eyed by bandmate Robin Bacior, whose tender phrasing emboldens Emanuelson’s lines to newer heights.
