She pulls us in right away with her working girl narrative:
There is a very precise pizzicato counterpoint between strings and dirty guitar; it creates a sort of art-rock melodic swell that feels like Feist being dry with a band. I love the songwriting and there's a Liz Phair sort of resemblance both in terms of being punk pretty and having a tell-all feel to the lyrics. Yes, go on, do tell.
Rose's last release has a top single with almost 1 million plays, after just 4 years. I think this next project will get there even faster because it sounds fantastic.
The sound of the tracks that I've heard so far is light and nuanced and smart and funny and could put her right on stage at The Hotel Cafe, circa now.
