World Watch: March – Fear of Roses


“Harvested in the deep south of the Netherlands” sounds like the birthplace of some low country Paul Bunyan folktale. Instead, it’s the origin story of March, a punk/rock band with scratchy, torn vocals and tight rock beats. They aren’t shy about their live shows kicking ass either- something you’d only expect after hearing this single. Founded in 2013, they’ve been getting some pub in Europe since their debut.

Their 2016, full length Stay Put got great reviews. It’s 13-songs of crashing symbols and fast riffs. In terms of steady tone it reminds me of Hit the Switch’s Entropy. Lead singer Fleur Van Zuilen’s vocals set the band above others and deserve to be checked out. The rest of the band is good too though as evidenced on new single “Fear of Roses”.

This song thuds along with comfortable verses of listed fears and a lead guitar driven chorus. It’s easy, hard rock with a punk spirit. There’s an album later this year. Check out this song and we’ll keep you up to date when the new album drops.
