New Zealand Singer Alba Rose Releases New Single ‘Serendipity’ Off Her Silhouette EP
Alba Rose is a 22-year-old indie-soul singer-songwriter and producer from Wellington, New Zealand. Alba, which means ‘sunrise,’ is drawn from her Spanish origin and also serves as her middle name; the term translates to ‘first light of the early morning’ in English.
Alba has spent the last four years working on a range of musical projects. Her main involvement was as the leader of an indie-pop New Zealand-based band called ‘Corduroy,’ with whom she released two EPs, six singles, toured across the country playing sold-out shows, supported international artists and leading NZ artists (Great Gable, Spacey Jane, Mako Road, Summer Thieves), and appeared at some of New Zealand’s leading summer festivals (Rhythm & Vines, Bay Dreams). Alba has also become a household name in New Zealand’s underground Liquid Drum & Bass scene as a result of her collaborations with local artists, with her tune ‘Breathe’ with CSM reaching the Top 20 Liquid chart in 2020.
Alba has been quietly building a varied body of new work with indie-soul, Jazz, and indie-pop elements since launching her solo project in early 2021. Her debut release date is August 27th, with a five-track EP due out in late 2021. Alba Rose produced all of the tracks, which were mixed by London-based Jim Macrae (Jordan Rakei, Yukul, Arjuna Oaks) and tracked and mastered at PureSound Studios in New Zealand.
Positive brain behaviour, letting go of one’s self-pressure and expectations, self-acceptance, and learning to trust the processes of life are lyrical themes that run through her songs as a result of her studies in Psychology and Sociology.
With a jam-packed previous few months of playing performances throughout the country, summer festivals, and a debut tour already booked, this New Zealand up-and-comer has a lot in the future. Alba Rose is an artist you should keep an eye on.
