Bleeding Rainbow rock hard, stuffing their tracks with aggressive chords, pounding drums and exploding layers of fuzz. But on "Oblivion," the Philly rockers shift their focus to their vocals, stacking harmonies upon harmonies for an even poppier take on their scorching tunes.

"We recorded Oblivion during the first of three recording sessions for our album Yeah Right," bassist and singer Sarah Everton tells Rolling Stone. "We wanted to take our harmonies to the extreme – we were listening to a lot of Everly Brothers at the time – and as a way to create tension that's broken by the pop chorus dropping in."

"Oblivion" will be available as a digital single, and Bleeding Rainbow's latest album, Yeah Right, is out now.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
