A local band out of Olympia called Oh, Rose got our attention recently with a powerful video about the loss of a loved one. The song, "25, Alive," touches on grief, mental illness, and building new family. Singer Olivia Rose Huebner stopped by KEXP to talk about their new album, While My Father Sleeps, out August 23rd via Park The Van Records.
KEXP is also premiering the band’s latest single, “Baby.” Stream the track and read about its inspiration and more about Oh, Rose in the interview below.
Olivia Rose: We have a new album coming out August 23rd. It's called While My Father Sleeps. It's actually the title of a book that my mother was writing when I was growing up. In a lot of ways, it's my homage to her. She passed away in January of 2017. So I chose the title of this album. I think in a lot of ways it's how I chose to grieve her.
