Rozi Plain

“Actually” is a new song by Rozi Plain. I’d never heard of Rozi Plain until I found Lost Map Records via Tuff Love who I found via a song called “Seafoam” on a cassette compilation on Bandcamp a few days ago and I can’t remember how I came across that. But I can tell Rozi Plain and her upcoming album “Friend” will become very familiar to me this year.

There’s something about the voice, phrasing, lyrics and music on “Actually” here which reminds me a little of Robert Wyatt, which is a wonderful thing indeed. If you check out other tracks like “Human” you’ll maybe get even more of a sense of this and the adventurous use of quite minimal instrumentation and arrangements – plus the voices – to make something special.
