Following two self-released albums - 2018’s ‘Tech Duinn’ and 2020’s ‘The Voyager’ - experimental folk musician Clarissa Connelly has signed to Warp for the next phase of her career. Her first release for the label is new single ‘Wee Rosebud’.
For the song’s paired back sound, Connelly performs with only layered vocals for its first half, before introducing a simple, percussive guitar part. Despite the intimacy created through this sparse instrumentation, the recording also has a grandness to it, with the lead vocal rising up above the rest of the track to touch every inch of space available.
You can catch Connelly live at the Vortex Jazz Club in London on. 24 Nov.
