LA alt.rockers Rooney return with new album Washed Away
After six years out working on other projects, Robert Schwartzman's band Rooney are back with new album Washed Away
The first new album in six years from LA rockers Rooney, Washed Away, is a sunshine-noir cocktail of fizzing new wave guitars and dreamy West Coast harmonies. Rooney are essentially a one-man-band vehicle for Robert Schwartzman, a composer, filmmaker and occasional actor with starry Hollywood connections: his mother is actor Talia Shire, his elder brother indie movie star Jason Schwartzman, and his uncle legendary director Francis Ford Coppola. But the 33-year-old wants his music to stand or fall on its own merits.
