New Track: Pedestal – Autumnmusic

songwriter AUTUMNMUSIC  AKA Rosi Croom revealed the impassioned lead track ‘Pedestal’, from her debut EP ‘Dreams&Fears’.

Kicking off with buoyant synth bass and Croom’s assertive vocals, ‘Pedestal’ is a minimal tale of sudden attraction and desire for human touch. As the track develops, her ethereal vocals soar above the enchanting production – embroiled in both anguish and desire. Inspired by Odysseus’ perilous maritime journey, ‘Pedestal’ begins the musical lovelorn voyage destined to end in emotional turmoil.

The debut EP sees Rosi put aside her usual themes of feminism, politics and mental health, to create a deeply personal body of work, taking listeners on a journey of sensuality, lust, loss and violence. These rich narratives are further brought to life on stage using a loop station and live sampling, weaving her stories and their accompanying motifs into a complex tapestry.

Behind the scenes Rosi has established herself as a formidable artistic talent, gaining a sync with Harvey Nichols and collaborating with American music producer Mark Endert, whose impressive discography has seen him work on Madonna’s Grammy Award winning album ‘Ray of Light’, as well as collaborating on numerous projects with Maroon 5, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus. Most recently, Rosi has worked as a choral arranger for Stu Larsen and American singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop, continuously diversifying her musical career. Choosing to create under the alias Autumnmusic, the elusive project explores the depths of the human heart and psyche through deep poetic craftsmanship – winning her 4 awards at The UK Song Writing Contest and support from Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music.

AUTUMNMUSIC reveals ‘Dreams&Fears’ at her EP launch show on 8th May at Servant Jazz Quarters in London, where she’s set to display her innate penchant for vivid storytelling in an intimate environment.
