Rosie Lowe - YU Colored Vinyl LP
Rosie Lowe YU Colored Vinyl LP
Summing up Rosie Lowe's sound isn't easy. The Guardian called her "a more machinistic Laura Mvula or an x-rated Sade." She's been compared to everyone from Solange, Jesse Ware and The Weeknd to Drake, James Blake and Air. You might describe her music as electronic R&B, yet it's built mostly from vocals. You could call it soul, but it's also jazz, hip hop and glitchy, pitch-shifting pop. You don't so much listen to Rosie Lowe's music as lose yourself in it.
Her sensual songs are windows to her world, through which you find yourself dreamily drawn. Her hypnotic vocals reel you in, imparting stories like secrets being whispered in your ear or subconscious confessions you're wary to share.
2019 sees Rosie return with her much-anticipated second album YU, the follow-up to her 2016 debut Control. Despite its richly classic feel, what's emerged on YU is an album on thoroughly modern, twenty-first-century love: its childhood myths and more pragmatic realities, its utopias and difficult weathers.
Those moments when you find out how you are, who you are, and if you're brave enough, you let it all bleed through. With the stunning YU, Rosie has also done just that. The 13-track collection sees her collaborate with the likes of Henry Wu (Kamaal Williams), Jay Electronica and more. The incredible single "Birdsong," was produced by Dave Okumu and features backing vocals from Jamie Woon, Jamie Lidell, Jordan Rakei and Kwabs.
