With their inherent brooding sadness it’s kind of surprising that it’s taken this long for
country-leaning act to realize that The National's songs were begging to be given a classic country
complete with pedal steel and some down-home Southern charm. Luckily the sheer obviousness
of this wasn’t wasted on Caitlin Rose. Yesterday the Nashville, TN-based singer-songwriter
released a gorgeous take on "Pink Rabbits" - a deep cut from the Brooklyn band’s latest
studio effort, Trouble Will Find Me.
For her take the adorable Rose channels the heartbreak in the dreamy, lovelorn lament,
turning it into a stunning, country-infused, Southern soul ballad. Let’s check it out:
Caitlin Rose, who released her highly-recommended sophomore album, The Stand-In,
earlier this year, will mix headlining shows with support dates for Dawes, Langhorne Slim
The Law and Leon Russell this fall.
