ROCH – Vienna

I’m aware that I don’t feature enough songwriters. While it’s easier that a catchy pop tune gets stuck into my head, recognize the talent behind some naked lyrics is damn complicated. Last year I placed a bet on ROCH, a promising artist based in London and also a sculpture student at Central St. Martin’s She recently returned with a new single titled Vienna, an intimate yet mesmerizing tune that screams Angel Olsen from every notes. But hey, I’m not saying she’s a copycat. Just saying that she’s GOOD. Two years ago I wrote about Mitski that “finding an artist so talented in using words is an hard job nowadays. When this happens, you have to pay attention.” I still stand with those words and ROCH’s profil perfectly fits that description.
