The internet was loving New Navy’s previous single, Heaven. It’s definitely a great song, but it’s just a little slow compared to what I’m used to hearing from the band. I mean, these are the same guys who made tropical pop jams like Zimbabwe and Regular Town. Those songs, along with everything else in their catalog, are amazing!
New Navy’s new song Rosaline brings the liveliness of their older tracks, but keeps the sweet polish that we heard in Heaven. It’s as if the band channeled Hats era Blue Nile and crafted a new, emotional version of the signature Australian indie, tropical pop. I can’t wait to hear what New Navy has ready for us with their upcoming album.
