Track Of The Day 13/9 – Rosie Alena
Rosie Alena doesn’t make songs that go in a straight line.
Instead of moving from A to B to C, she’ll construct adjuncts and sudden about-turns, all while kind of making emotional sense.
Developing a partnership with producer Oli Barton-Wood, they use his studio as a base, constructing these intriguing, ad hoc blasts of sound.
Guests and collaborators come and go, with black midi drummer Morgan Simpson illuminating new single ‘God’s Garden’.
A real puzzle of a dog, Rosie’s lilting voice is transported to another plane entirely by Morgan’s drumming, as the song moves from vantage point to vantage point.
Speaking about the single, Rosie Alena says it “spawned from multiple conversations with friends about their expectations of entering a new romantic relationship…”
A song about embracing relationships while acknowledging your own needs, in her words ‘God’s Garden’ says “I love you, but I also love myself, so here’s a few terms and conditions to ensure we don’t wither and wilt like a plant without water.”
Tune in now.
