Rosie Lowe - New Waves

Devon’s Rosie Lowe has been bubbling under this year, originally with 3 songs (River, 10 Thousand Ballooons and Sinking Sand) on her Soundcloud, (they have now all now been removed) as well as providing guest vocals on Lil Silva’s deep house tune No Doubt this summer. However, a new track appeared today and so we feel it’s time to introduce Rosie to readers of Breaking More Waves.

Me & Your Ghost is very of the moment stuff. With looped spooked out noises, solemn piano and beats that sound like someone is pressing buttons at random, Me & Your Ghost is by no means a straightforward pop song, but in some ways it still is pop as it sounds very of the moment. It probably sits in the more out there territory of an avant-garde pop artist like Bjork , particularly in terms of its unusual use of beats. The comparisons with Laura Mvula, The XX, Jessie Ware or Sade that have been lobbed her way may be difficult to hear at this moment, but give it some time and more will become clear. 

Me & Your Ghost is taken from Rosie’s forthcoming EP Right Thing due on December 2 which she worked on with Kwes and Dave Okumu of The Invisible.
