Rosa Nutty - Sea Salt
Info: June 29th will see Rosa Nutty’s second headline show of 2016. She plays The Grand Social along with her band, and they will be joined on the night by Ailbhe Reddy. The gig marks the official release of 'Sea Salt', Nutty’s first track-release since her debut EP Bunny in August 2015. 'Sea Salt' explores how early-life relationships dissolve as people begin to polarize with age. The video for thesong, directed by Sean Clarke, will also be premiered on the night.
'Sea Salt' is a song that wants to hold your worries and thoughts in its hands as you repose in the wind of Nutty's voice. Stylistically you could cast Rosa Nutty as an Irish Lily Allen on this particular track, the delivery of her message is nonchalant in tone but sung with emotional meaning. Everything encompasses you, from the slow swaying rhythm to her layered vocal arrangements, whilst the theme of the song is one of regret and disappointment, an overall feeling of calm falls over the listener. The track closes with the thoughtful line; 'It's getting harder to watch you think the way you do, while I'm detox, well, you're just toxic, such is life, we are different people.'
Nutty is an interesting proposition, different to her peers certainly, but also portraying natural talent on a number of fronts from song-writing to lyrics to vocals all at once. Her songs are already very good, but it's obvious she has only scratched the surface of her talents, and that's what's exciting, imagining the unwritten songs that are only subconscious saplings in her head at the moment, and wondering how big they may become.
Rosa Nutty plays The Grand Social, Dublin 1, tomorrow night, the 29th of June with support from the equally talented Ailbhe Reddy, info here.
