ReverbNation: Andalusia Rose

Andalusia RoseWelcome to DrunkenWerewolf’s ReverbNation column; a place where you’ll find the fruits of our labour following out partnership with the app and social media music goliath. Over the next three months, we’ll be scouring submissions through their website to bring a selection of the finest to your ears.

Andalusia Rose are a three piece from San Francisco’s Bay Area. Comprised of front woman and head honcho Wendy Lee Gadzuk, alongside “low end alchemist” Jeff Vengeance and drummer Paul Jarvis, they formed in 2012 under the watchful eye of Venus and some smoldering patuli incense.

“Andalusia Rose is the Patron Saint of Roses,” explains the band. “She became honoured as such after her tears of anguish over being unable to bear children fed the soil where she grieved and impregnated it with the seeds of a thousand rose bushes. She became sought after far and wide to sing and weep her crystalline tears into the soil, creating magnificent rose gardens across the land. She died childless, but left behind a legacy of beauty and magic to her name. Andalusia Rose lives on. These are her songs.”

More important than mythology, Andalusia Rose’s songs are bloody ace. A distinct blend of Rebekah Delgado, Nick Cave and Patti Smith punctuates their work, particularly on lead song “A Thousand Miles”. Elsewhere the trio rock and roll their way through a weird and wonderful world of garden decoration, commonly referred to as their self-titled debut album.
