ROLES WORK FROM HOME, WITH A LIVE STREAM SINGLE RELEASE AND VIDEO LAUNCH

BY Louise Love | 22-Mar-2020
Post-punk duo Roles are set to release their debut album 'There's A Space’ in mid 2020 and the album's second single (and video) premiered online today. 'Try Being Human’ plays with spacious melody, haunting vocals and subtle groove. The minimalist video is innovative, evocative and hypnotic; another DIY offering from the pair. In the wake of the wave of COVID-19 gig cancellations, Roles have decided to bring this release forward and hop on the livestream bandwagon with a Live Facebook stream performance this Friday night.
