Watch Pawnshop Roses' socially-distanced version of "Sunshine" - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Long-running Philadelphia rock five-piece Pawnshop Roses are staying connected during the Coronavirus quarantine, and used a video conference motif to roll out their new song “Sunshine.”

“We’ve all been holed up like everyone else, but decided to release a new song/video,” writes singer-guitarist Paul Keen. “Separate, but still together.”

With Keen appearing first at the center screen, we are introduced feed-by-feed to rhythm guitarist Kevin Bentley, lead guitarist Jason Jonik, bassist Jude Alvarez, and drummer Zil Fessler. As the pieces fall into place, the song unfurls into a contemplative rocker inspired by White Album-era Beatles, and we hear lyrics about social anxiety and missed connection — something we are certainly all experiencing to a great degree these days.

As Pawnshop Roses shows in this performance, bridging that distance isn’t as hard as it seems. Watch “Sunshine” below.
