Rose Elinor Dougall - Find Me Out

It’s been nine months since we last featured Rose Elinor Dougall at Breaking More Waves, but with the release of her new single Find Me Out on the 3rd May through Dance To The Radio it really is time to do so again. For Find Me Out is without doubt Rose’s finest moment to date. Sounding like she has stepped out of the Kill Bill Vol 1 soundtrack, Rose takes the drugged stillness of a whistle last heard on Twisted Nerve by Bernard Herrmann and combines it with the melancholy mood of Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) by Nancy Sinatra. Subtly layered to this are moments of soft jazzy percussion and weary sparse guitar to create a quiet restrained piece of loveliness.

Rose has written that the song may seem a strange choice of single to some people; but not so here. Find Me Out makes perfect sense, giving a whole new dimension to Rose’s output, surely putting the final nail in The Pipettes coffin. With a forthcoming album Without Why ready for release, and Rose also playing a part in the new Mark Ronson project, there’s plenty to get excited about in the Dougall camp. You can listen to the new single which is streamed below.
