“Mural Mosaic” is the latest single from D.C. rockers Frass Green. The track represents the first single from their upcoming album, Buried, releasing on September 9th.
The band wrote “Mural Mosaic” in the summer of 2020, in the midst of their protests for racial justice. The response from political leaders — ranging from “gassing us or trying to placate” — inspired feelings, reflected in the song. “This how D.C. felt to us then,” they say.
A plucky bass line and shimmering guitars front a radiant introduction. The jangly guitars during the central chorus — “the streets,” — plays with vibrant, replay-inducing appeal. A yearning guitar emphasis follows, cohesively guiding back into the verses. The track’s contagious power-pop and rock wall of sound plays with a solid melodic pull throughout.
The band was featured in prior years, with the tracks “Feels Like Summer” and “The Band Is Breaking Up.”
