‘Take What You Can Get’, is an unsettling cinematic pop track, arriving with the crash, growth bang of buzzing bass guitar and thunderous drums and fades to black with Rose’s voice fractured amongst the synths and creeping strings.
Conveying the song’s concept Rose suggests – “In Get What You Can Get’ I was seeking to convey that hungry ardent electricity that a single can experience when falling for a person – for this reason the propulsive frenetic vitality of the monitor. The concepts in the music can also be extended into a broader context of thinking about that greedy, opportunistic society that looks all pervasive in present day day culture. Filling the un-fillable void!”
Rose will showcase ‘Take What You Can Get’ and more new content from ‘A New Illusion’ at a absolutely free gig at London’s Thousand Islands on March 26th. She’ll also be executing at Rough Trade East at 1.30pm on April 6th. Further dates are remaining lined up for May possibly.
With a recognizable shift in dynamic, A New Illusion sees Dougall seeking into the abyss – the millennial-burnout, Brexit-apocalypse, individuals extremely hard disappointments of developing up in the 21st century Britain – singing quietly with piano, with guitar, and with a gentle fuck-it attitude.
“I just preferred to sit at the piano and engage in, I needed to return to some thing essential,” Dougall describes. “There’s anything comforting and strong about that instinctive relationship with music, with actively playing and singing.”
Dougall has previously unveiled two tracks: guide single 1st Indicator – a song about – “vainly attemping to shake oneself loose from a situation” and ‘Make It With You’ – “in essence a basic really like track, but set in opposition to the fear of an unsure, turbulent upcoming.”
A New Illusion is slower and more self-assured than her prior albums – the themes could be urgent but the audio is far more comfortable. “I really do not come to feel the identical angst about acknowledgement or approval. I decided to have confidence in my instincts, to see if they hook up with the planet. I have been building tunes all my existence, and this feels like a end result of those people encounters. I come to feel I have grown extra fluent, additional self-confident, far more in demand that I have appear nearer to my all-natural sonic habitat.”
