“Strays in the Cut is the much-anticipated follow-up to Rose’s Behold a Pale Horse, which Flashwounds declared a “deep swirl of Blues and Rock and Roll” that “beautifully represents the many dark and beautiful corridors of the human heart.”
Behold a Pale Horse introduced us to Rose’s dynamic voice and effortless command of the guitar; each song highlighted by attitude and pure grit. Undoubtedly, Behold a Pale Horse cemented Rose as a veritable force, with hard-driving Rock and dirty Blues coursing through her veins. When The Gramophone Rings called her, “something of a rare breed” and claimed she is, “a singer-songwriter with an ear to 90s pop-rock and a penchant for big hooks, her sound is straightforward, even earnest, with a focus on performance over production. In 2012, Rose also gained attention for her sultry take on Arcade Fire’s “My Body is a Cage,” which is currently available for download on iTunes.
Cover Me Songs premiered the track, affirming, “The sparse cover showcases her effortlessly soulful singing.” Since then, Rose has shared the stage with a variety of notable artists, including: Crystal Bowersox, Howie Day, Teddy Geiger, Tyler Hilton and founding member of Live, Ed Kowalczyk. The consummate artist, Rose lets her spirit shine through with every performance, while captivated fans hang on every note.”
Having been around for quite a few years, Anna Rose now has an established following for her take on indie rock. Striking guitars and the imposing voice of Rose were fantastically merged throughout her debut album, ‘Behold a Pale Horse’, to produce a work that is equal parts rock and folk with just a dash of country.
Since then though, there have been a number of releases from Anna Rose which will both cement her place as a slow-burning rising star of music and promise hope for a number of fans who have waited a long three years since her 2013 debut. The most recent of the songs of 2016, ‘Bury Me Deep’ and ‘My Shit’s Fucked Up’ are both very much more of the same from Rose, a pair of attitude filled rock tracks that blurs the lines between genres.
With a number of dates across the US in the coming months, fans in the North East of America will no doubt be treated to a set of rousing live performances.
