Rosie & The Goldbug
It’s probably fair to say that whatever stereotypical preconception you may harbour of the sound of Cornwall, the music of Rosie And The Goldbug may not be it. Think Lower East Side, rather than Bodmin Moor for this electro-synth trio.
The band formed in 2007, when lead vocalist/keyboardist Rosie Vanier finished her music studies at university in south west London and ventured back home, with one thing in mind; to form a band. She eventually hooked up with her two bandmates – rejoicing in the names of Plums and Pixie - who had been students together at Exmouth University (and Pixie was Rosie’s sister’s boyfriend).
The trio’ sound operates somewhere between Siouxsie & The Banshees and Cyndi Lauper having a sing-off with Kate Bush; the band’s spiky synth stabs providing the perfect canvas for Vanier's enchanting howl.
New single Heartbreak is released on Monday, February 9, from their forthcoming self-titled debut album, for which the band enlisted the help of Glasgow band El Presidente and Marcella Detroit (formerly of Shakespear’s Sister).
