Eavesdrop: Elizabeth Rose

Catching up with the Sydney-side producer ahead of her sophomore EP

Posted by Finn Houlihan

Elizabeth Rose first popped into the collective musical consciousness in 2012 when she dropped her experimental pop EP Crystallise. Two years later and her latest track ‘Another Earth’ is a distinct departure from her more beat-dependent style, matching her smooth vocal style with more of a ballad backing including softer percussion and layered vocals. We talked about the track and some of her future plans. She’s performing in Melbourne and Brisbane very soon so if you like her style, make sure you scope for tickets here.

Who are you?

Heya! I’m Elizabeth and I sing and produce music as Elizabeth Rose.

Where are you from?

Sydney.

What is unique about your local music scene?

A lot of interesting electronic music is coming out of Sydney and international people are looking to us for a fresh sound.

Describe your sound in three words. Go!

Detailed, moody, hook-y.

What makes you unique as an artist?

I guess being a female who produces, sings and writes her own stuff – it’s not overly common, but that’s slowly changing!

Have you heard any new music lately? Got any recommendations?

Yes! There’s a great album by a female producer from Kuwait called Fatima Al Qadiri – her most recent album called Asiatisch is inspiring for producers.

Tell us a little about this release.

‘Another Earth’ is a track that I wrote about a movie I watched last year of the same title. I was instantly inspired by the storyline of it; of there being a clone of our earth with another ‘us’ leading a different life on it. But first came the instrumental which I worked on with a very talented producer from Brooklyn who goes by the name of Chrome Sparks. I tweeted at him a few years back and that planted the seed of us working together sometime in the not too distant future. Then I was in NY last year and we finally organised to meet up and out came the instrumental. I then finished it back home where I wrote the vocals after watching this movie, Another Earth.

What inspired the artwork for this track?

It’s actually a subtle allusion to the album artwork and that’s all I’m gonna say for now.

What else are you working on at the moment?

A few collaborations that piled up over the past year of working on my record.

Do you have any shows coming up?

Yep! I’m in the middle of my Discotheque club tour – Saturday night I’m playing live at Boney in Melbourne with DJ sets from Oscar Key Sung, Rat & Co and Friendships. Sunday night I’m playing in Brisbane at the Brightside with DJ sets from Seekae, Tyler touché and Floria.
