Chris Chevayo, the lead guitarist and composer of Rose Windows, formed the band after he grew tired of the monochromatic music he was making with his prior heavy rock band.

Rose Windows, heavy on flutes and organs with soaring, emotional lead vocals from Rabia Shazeen Quazi, is a drastic change from heavy rock Chevayo was making before, but it makes sense that it's the path he would take. Chevayo was turned off by music's new reliance on synths and computers, so Rose Windows is entirely live, typically with seven members, including up to four vocalists.

The Seattle band takes hints from world music, but also classic psychedelic rock of the 1960s. Some parts of their songs sound like The Doors, while others, like the opening flute of "Heavenly Days," could be the soundtrack to a trip through rural China.

The two songs Rose Windows performed live at KDHX were stripped down and acoustic, which made for a much more mellow sound and let Quazi's vocals serve as the centerpiece. While the band always has a bit of a folky vibe, be sure to listen to their album releases, as well as this acoustic live session, for a full glimpse at the trippy, vibrant constructions Rose Windows produce.
