We try to give everything that is sent to Walrus Towers a proper listen in the spirit of John Peel, but every now and again a band or artist comes across our desks that you know you’ve fallen in love to within the first twenty seconds. Rosie and Me (twitter) did just that. Hailing from Curitiba, Brazil they may describe themselves as simple and unpretentious, but they certainly know how to craft beautifully delicate and innocent folk pop.
“Come Back” is one of the sweetest songs I’ve heard for months with songstress Rosanne Machado lamenting a loss and craving the return of a lover who has moved onto pastures new. But that is not the sum of their talents as the duet “Folkie Song #2” takes a completely different direction a reflects a more lustful, rougher focus.
Rosie and Me are currently unsigned but that means you can buy the Bird & Whale EP directly from the band
(they also have a collection of other songs available for free on their Soundcloud)
