FRESH: ‘Tell Me’ – Rozelle

Rozelle say “Tell Me”

Reflecting on the complexities and anxieties of modern life, Rozelle explores existence and identity in a tumultuous world. 2020 is already proving to be a massive year for Rozelle. After returning from a twelve month hiatus, Rozelle have already unleashed three singles, the latest of which is “Tell Me”, which is inspired by the story of two friends talking about their future and in these times, is the perfect tune to move and make you feel good.

The new songs have already racked up thousands of plays across Spotify and Apple Music and already have strong support from the likes of the BBC, NITELIFE magazine and many others. Within their tracks they challenge stereotypes, address climate emergency, and confront pressures to be someone with it all worked out. In their quest to transcend mounting uncertainty and societal difficulties, the band find a certain awakening and assurance in fluidity, in existing outside of the box and breaking down the rigidity of expectation.

Living together in Bristol, Rozelle have been busy writing a collection of songs that draw on a wealth of influences, offering a particular expansive quality to their material. Expect to hear rich, crystalline vocals soaring atop intricate guitar melodies and resonant bass lines, as they deliver moments of glistening electro-pop, swirling alt-rock, and hazy dreamscapes tinged with atmospheric electronica. Motivated to get others thinking about their individuality and the constraints that come with following traditions today, the band are set to release a library of indie rock, alt pop singles this year.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
