Ahead of the release of their debut album Days You Were Leaving (Bar None Records) Rose Dorn have dropped a new single entitled “Champ.” The track debuted viaFLOOD Magazineand the band’s Scarlet Knight told them “‘Champ’ is about my time in high school and trying to figure out who I was. The lyric ‘All my friends are in my hand the computer that I continue to hold on’ is specifically about the time when Joey, Jamie and I were becoming close friends. I’d walk around school texting them all day, head fully in my phone. At some point I realized I was dissociating, cut off from the world around me, only able to feel peace when I was actively connecting with my two best friends through a screen. Nothing else really mattered.” The video was directed by Julia Ling Kelleher who notes, “I was influenced visually by Jane Campion’s movie Sweetie. Similar to the main character Kay, Scarlet is isolated in this big suburban house, where she’s trying to get all the words out but no one’s really listening or paying attention.” Read the full write-up HERE and watch “Champ” HERE
