The Rosenkranz

BandAlternativeRock

Drawing on influences from artists like The Beatles
and Grant Lee Buffalo, to name but two, the songs have
an innocent humour and depth carried on memorable hook lines and
melodies guaranteed to resonate long after each listen.
The Rosenkranz sound is a fusion of indie, low fi, pop and traditional
folk topped off by an almost psychedelic approach to the vocal.
This music will leave you smiling and wanting to hear more everytime.
