Elizabeth Rose produces and writes electronic pop songs that are at once bright and moody, layering catchy melodies against shimmering synths and pulsing beats. Her debut EP, Crystallise, established her as one of the most exciting new voices in Australian electronic music, and her second self-titled follow up, released January 2014, delivered on this promise and then some, with richer harmonies, more intricate melodies and a deeper set of sounds and influences.
In her short career, Rose has received a number of accolades. She won the QANTAS Spirit Of Youth Music Award, FBi Radio ‘Next Big Thing’ SMAC award and was selected in Triple J’s ‘Next Crop’. Her 2014 EP went to #1 on iTunes AU Electronic Charts, #1 most played at Triple J radio for single ‘The Good Life’ and saw her first plays on UK’s XFM, 6music and on U.S College Radio.
She has also racked up a list of seriously impressive collaborations. Her debut EP, Crystallise, featured collaboration with UK producer Sinden, and Rose has appeared as a vocalist on tracks for Dr. Don Don, Flight Facilities & The Aston Shuffle.
Early 2015, she released single Another Earth, coproduced with Brooklyn’s Chrome Sparks and accompanied by a remix from Future Classic label mates HWLS (Ta-Ku and Kit Pop).
Most recently, Rose made her deep concern with Australian laws preventing marriage equality known with new single Division. Co-produced with Dennis Dowlut (Electric Empire), the singles delicate instrumentals, largely powered through cascading piano allow plenty of room for Rose’s stunning vocals to shine through, putting the message of “Division” front and centre – where a message of this urgency should be.
"Ireland recently became the nineteenth country to allow same sex marriage, they join the Netherlands, Argentina, Brazil, Sweden, Norway, France, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Spain and the U.K. We are moving towards this significant moment in Australian history and I urge people to accept and embrace this need for equality in our country." - Elizabeth Rose
Division is out now.
