30 seconds interview: Rosie Lowe

Rosie Low

Electronic chanteuse Rosie Lowe is behind a lux new soul sound which sits someway between Jessie Ware and Lykke Li.

Her music is extremely careful and considered: songs are well-appointed with slow-mo beats, electronic crunches and shiny surfaces, while vocals are humid and dense.

It’s a stifling, stylised take on electronic R&B, which hangs heavy in the air and lingers long on your eardrums.

Over the last 18 months, she’s unsurprisingly attracted an ever-spiralling wave of plaudits and praise, in part due to the steady drip feed of singles such as Who’s That Girl?, Water Came Down and How’d You Like It.

With a debut album, Control, due on Paul Epworth’s Wolf Tone label next week (19 February), we caught up with her to find out more about life in the musical fast lane…

I have been making music since…
I was five – I’ve been playing music since I was five, and I wrote my first song when I was eight.

My music is…
My everything.

You’ll like me if you listen to…
Music!

My favourite venue is…
The Union Chapel, London

Music is important because…
It makes you feel stuff. One song can bring together a million people who would agree on nothing else.

My biggest inspiration is…
My best friend, Nicole.

My dream collaboration would be…
Kendrick Lamar and James Blake

To try me out, listen to my track…
Right Thing.

If I wasn’t making music I’d be…
Confused.

In 10 years’ time I want to be…
Better.
