Chicago indie rockers Twin Peaks shared "Holding Roses," a vibrant song with laid back beats and funky melodies. Listen above.

Twin Peaks premiered the new track on NPR and are currently gearing towards the release of their third studio album, Down In Heaven. So far, they've shared the singles "Butterfly" and "Walk To The One You Love."

Clay Frankel takes lead vocals on this track. The band's other vocalist / guitarist Cadien Lake James spoke more about the song:

Something I appreciate about "Holding Roses" is that while it clearly seems to be about the end of a relationship, whomever it's with isn't ever specified; I didn't first think of it as a girlfriend leaving, but of the exit of a friend, the passing of someone close. When we were recording it, I remember everybody getting giddy riffing on the percussion grooves entering in the second verse, where the live kit drops out for a couple measures, replaced with a number of tambourines, claps, and shakers we ran through our space echo with the addition of some "ooh's" and "ah's." Things came alive with overdubs back in Chicago: the piano part really cemented some melodies between vocals and our friend Will Miller laid down a muted trumpet that completed the process

Down In Heaven is scheduled to be released May 13, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon.
