Rose Gray - Save Your Tears
Rose Gray has obviously been listening to a load of early Primal Scream and Saint Etienne albums because this new EP is a love letter to a very particular style of indie dance that was around in 1991. One that I was obsessed with at the time. She has embraced the heavy breakbeats that were everywhere back then, and the results are two retro-sounding tracks that manage to still feel fresh thanks to Gray's phenomenal vocals and storytelling. There is also a pitch-perfect cover of 'Nothing Can Stop Us' here, which is making me so happy I could actually burst.
