Indie rock quartet Ok Cowgirl delivers a message that’s all too relatable to anyone who has ever loved and lost on “Across The Room,” giving us the first glimpse of their upcoming debut EP, Not My First Rodeo. Teasing out the complicated web of emotions that comes with crossing paths with an ex, the track’s heartfelt narrative hides behind upbeat sonics.
With reverb-drenched opening notes that give away to frontwoman Leah Lavigne’s hazy yet powerful vocals, the track moves from dreamy synths to gritty guitars over pulsing beats, as the lyrics take us on an emotive journey exploring the sudden moments when old heartbreak that had faded into the background of daily life, gains a spark of life stopping us in our tracks.
Delving into the fact that “heartache never completely dissipates,” “Across The Room,” splits evenly between tenderness and bitterness as the layered sonics wash over you, inviting you to explore the feelings that remain nestled away and ignored in your heart.
Made up of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Leah Lavigne, Matt Birkenholz on drums, Jase Hottenroth on bass, and Jake Sabinsky on guitar, theBrooklyn-based four-piece who have cultivated their artistry at the intersection of lyric-driven catharsis and dreamy, guitar-centric euphoria have refined their sound, building upon a rich combination of DIY productions, raw performance skills and honest lyrical endeavors. With this latest foray they let us have a sneak peek of the reprieve and release that their debut EP will offer us.
