Sub Rosa


This duo has impressed me with their new style of nu rave, moving away from the awkward vocals and casio pianos. The vocals in the tracks are smooth and chilingly soothing while the electro beats keeps the vibe more upbeat and dancey (especially in the popular song ‘Take Me With You’).

Have a read of the interview!
How did you come up with the name?
Linda: “The term ‘Sub Rosa’ is associated with many things including secrecy and confession
which is a consistent theme in my lyrics.”

Tell me a little about yourselves?
Linda: “We are currently based in Nottingham, England. I’m 23, and the vocalist and lyricist.
AK: “I’m 22 and i make all the music.”

What did you guys do before the duo started?
Linda: “Before Sub Rosa came together I was a writer, poet and just looking for artistic direction.”
AK: “I’ve been involved in various different musical projects.”

How did you start out/ was it hard?
Linda: “We’ve known each other on and off for eight years and have dabbled in music production
with each other in that time. We drifted apart and then came together, more mature and with
mutual ideas.”

Any big plans for the near future?
Linda: “Yes, many. We are planning to start by establishing ourselves around the Nottingham live music scene before moving to London and travelling around the country to promote our sound.”

–Random questions–
What song have you been listening to most in the past few weeks?
Linda: “A song i cant stop listening to is Portishead’s ‘We Carry On’. The lyrics are in the style of alot
of my poetry and the beat is infectious.”
AK: “Totally love ‘Creator’ by Santo Gold at the moment, the bass is rediculous!”

What one materialistic thing can you not live without?
AK: “Hats!”
Linda: “I’m not really a materialistic person but i never leave the house without some beads on.”

Does being in a band help in picking up girls/boys?
AK: “Haha, I wish!”

With music it’s always hard to explain the music, especially with alternative music. So just have a quick listen to the songs they’ve uploaded on their MySpace…mmkay?!
