Rose Hotel’s 2017 EP, "Always A Good Reason," was passed around like a secret in music scenes and college towns from Athens, Ga. to Bowling Green, Ky. The stripped-down intimacy was equal parts introspective and wistful, recalling a distant era when voices like Joni Mitchell and Emmylou Harris cut through the hiss of A.M. static. Rose Hotel's forthcoming debut LP, "I Will Only Come When It’s A Yes," offers a polished, full-band sound, which is a striking evolution from the lo-fi, bedroom origins of Reynolds’ first recordings under the moniker. The fuller soundscapes highlight Reynolds’ captivating vocals that at times feel like rocks to the stomach, giving the listener a sinking feeling and drawing them in. Like that grade school truth about pressure over time, the sum of her vocals on the record form a pressure that presses it into a solid, glittering whole.
