Ezza Roses Shares New Album NO MEANS NO via Impose, LP Out Tomorrow 9/21
by BWW News Desk - Sep 20, 2018

Portland's dream rock / psychedelic pop band, Ezza Rose, will release their forth album, No Means No, tomorrow, Friday September 21, 2018. Impose Magazine, who is now streaming the LP in-full, says, 'Ezza Rose has done something on this LP that is rare; this is a perfect 7-song view into the soul of American identity politics, while remaining human, honest, humble and maybe even complicit at times. It deals with heavy topics, but it's a given that choruses will be stuck in your head, and guitar riffs will visit you through the day and have you humming. It's a balance in and of itself — it rocks, but it also makes you think. Rock and roll is for the neck down, but this album lives in your head too. The take away that it leaves you with is simple; nobody is perfect, but this album begs for directness and boundaries. Perfection is a myth that takes us further from a progressive future.'
