Sultry-voiced r&b singers are in plentiful supply. Same too of slick electronic producers. But rarer still is the dual threat talent working both ends of the recording process, which is why we’re so high on Sydney, Australia’s Elizabeth Rose right now. Consider a track like her “The Good Life”, a busy, clattering, but clear and distinct production with Rose’s 90s-evoking r&b vocal as all the evidence you need to get on board. That track, and her latest, the lilting, beguiling breeze”Sensibility”, co-produced with Cameron Parkin and Styalz Fuego) will appear on her self-titled second EP out later this month.
“I love 90s-early 2000s r&b, as I grew up listening to it,” Rose, who’s troued with Chairlift, performed at Field Day, and Park Life, collaborated with Sinden, and done remixes for Flight Facilities and Jinja Safari, says. “I definitely had that sound in mind when I wrote this track. ‘Sensibility’ is about the push and pulls of a relationship that is starting to fall apart..about the mind games involved.”
