INTERVIEW: Ellie Rose
Hi Ellie, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey hey, I’m well thanks; just ate a bit too much cake.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Welcome To The Kingdom”?
Welcome To The Kingdom is a song that tells you how anxious I am feeling, that I might blow every chance I’m given, that there’s a world of opportunity in front of me and I’m terrified to lose it!
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
It was inspired by many events in my life – there was an unfortunate incident at the school I attended in South London, which involved people taking advantage of a good situation and screwing it up. I guess that was the catalyst for writing the song.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes, it was filmed in my favourite places and will be online very soon!
How was the recording and writing process?
It was a very cold day and we ate pizza. I wrote and recorded the song with a talented gentleman called Linus. He was great to work with and we bonded over our favourite music. I’m really pleased with the result.
What role does filmmaking play in your music?
I like visuals, I always have done. I’m not inspired by movies or videos when I write my songs, I write from my heart, but I do enjoy the challenge of finding imagery to match my words.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
It does indeed – the new material is something I’m excited about. I had my heart shattered during the writing process, so I’m looking forward to people hearing about it.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Next year there will be new recordings to get your hands on but in the meantime – I’ll be playing all the new tracks at my London show on January 26th at The Old Blue Last.
Any plans to hit the road?
I imagine I would break my hand if I did that.
What else is happening next in Ellie Rose’s world?
I’m trying on bridal gowns pretty much on a daily basis. I’m not getting married though.
