On Sand + Silence, the forthcoming sixth album from the North Carolina indie duo the Rosebuds, the band teamed up with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, who co-produced the album and also added guitars and synths. I’m pretty sure you can also hear Vernon’s voice deep in the mix on “Esse Quam Videri,” the latest song we’ve heard from the album. (It follows “In My Teeth” and “Blue Eyes.”) “Esse Qua Videri” is grand, towering jangle-pop, done with the sort of production sheen that you’d hear on, say, a mid-’80s Don Henley record. Listen to it below.
Sand + Silence is out 8/5 on Western Vinyl.
