The North Carolina-based band Roman Candles features Daniel Jackson, Grey Revell, Justin Kent and Rodney Wallin. In 2013, these studio musicians came together in Charlotte with a new mission: to write and perform their own music. They have noted bands such as King Crimson, The Verve and Echo and the Bunnymen as their inspiration, as well as their love of classic American rock. So, if you like some feel-good rock with a sunshine feel, this is one band worth checking out
As the follow-up to their 2020 Proximo EP, The City is Closed is their debut album. Full of heart and feel-good rock melodies, it explores the pain of toxic relationships, the turmoil of their ends and the eventual joy in learning to appreciate the small beauties of everyday life. Numerous other musicians can be heard on the album too, including pedal steel local legend Jim Ashton and members of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra.
