Rose does drama

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE ’N’ LOUD -

Elizabeth Rose (pic­tured) plays the Gold Coast this week­end she will be rock­ing a cus­tom-made hot pink vel­vet mini dress em­bel­lished with glit­ter. The Syd­ney-based elec­tronic pop chanteuse says she is at­tracted to the the­atri­cal side of mu­sic, so nat­u­rally jumps at any chance to dress up on stage. ‘‘The same goes for my art­work – I like to cre­ate things that are vis­ually in­ter­est­ing and quite dra­matic,’’ she says. ‘‘I also like to use a lot of colour­ful sounds in my mu­sic and make them quite de­tailed. At­ten­tion to de­tail is really im­por­tant to me.’’ Rose, 22, re­leased her de­but EP, Crys­tallise, in Oc­to­ber last year and has toured with New York’s Chair­lift, Snakadak­tal and Ru­fus. A pro­ducer and singer-song­writer, Rose re­leased a remix EP Give In this month fea­tur­ing mixes of her orig­i­nal tracks from Ghost, Moses MacRae, Sin­den and Mor­gan Zarate. Rose says she’s keen to con­tinue mov­ing for­ward and hopes to re­lease an­other EP mid-year. Her de­sire to move away from ‘‘easy’’ pop lyrics means her next EP to be deeper lyri­cally. ‘‘My song­writ­ing has devel­oped lyri­cally and melod­i­cally,’’ she says. ‘‘I have been ex­posed to a lot more mu­sic in the last six months which has given me in­spi­ra­tion.’’

Elizabeth Rose and Von Vil­lains play Else­where Bar in Surfers Par­adise to­mor­row night.
