Hey Rosetta! – Yer Spring
Hey Rosetta! make that extra-solid indie rock that indie rock lovers love to love. Ya feel me? I can't describe "Yer Spring" anymore eloquently or lovely than singer Tim Baker does so peep it:
“A lot of the time we're in bars, and even on nights off we often find ourselves there. And I tend to wonder: Why? What are we looking for in such dank, pricey, poisonous places? I guess we were born at a time where religion cannot hold us or catch us or guide us, and so we were born into bars and into drugs. And this is a song about that looking for a spring, in every sense of the word: a rebirth, a propulsion, a source of power and nourishment. It's a song about thinking you've found it in booze and chemicals but then realizing, like winter coming, you have not. But it's not completely dark or resigned. It ends with an appeal: the speaker shouts he is still ready to be lifted. I think we all are. This is a song about that.”
The accompanying video is scenes from a caroling session the band went on and the party that ensued in a strangers' house. The imagery is perfectly matched to the music. It's a beautiful thing.
