Hey Rosetta!, a seven-piece indie rock band from the far north is best known for their flair for energetic live performances and unique blend of strings, brass, piano, and drums. The band originally hails from the ocean sprayed shores of St. John’s, Newfoundland in Canada. Their fourth studio album, “Second Sight,” is set to be released in the US on Jan. 27.
