It is proof that not everything is complicated (yet) when a 22-year-old British folk-rocker can emerge from modern youth culture in the form of a strawberry cupcake with the toppings of classical vocals raised on a string guitar. Cat Power or Regina Spector minus the attitude and Jewel plus a hipster beat and you come close to Lucy Rose.
With an air beyond her age, Lucy Rose lends her pipes to the indie pop scene with layers of lyrical poetry and alternative rock. Her latest single of three Red Face (Fauna Records) captures her vocal power and resembles her origins, previously contributed to Bombay Bicycle Club. Scar and Middle of the Bed are among the Rose collection leading up to her 2012 album debut (projected late summer 2012) as she teams up with Producer Charlie Hugall in between a long-winded tour throughout North America. An easy listen with a few pulsating slopes on the melodic path, the damsel opens up an armful of fresh and spirited energy. It’s roadtrip highs and late night lows. Bedside cries and lovesick woes. Catch her in Philly on the 10th, before she bounces back to the UK throughout May. Thanks to some Weapon of Choice we got a little front seat ride with the lastest Rose sets. Check out her band page on FB here and her Soundcloud specials for that roadtrip high.
