With her new EP ‘Synchronicity’ due for release this summer, Rose Gray has shared the title track.
“I wrote ‘Synchronicity’ with Alex Metric in London a few months back,” Rose explains. “Alex started playing with ethereal synths, and I was instantly in love with the soundscape we had created. It reminded me of ‘Bedtime Stories’ by Madonna - one of my favourites. Lyrically I take you on a whimsical journey, completely losing myself and yet still feeling reassured by the power of human connection. I’ve always been fascinated by synchronicities.”
Accompanied by a new video directed by Rauri Cantelo, Rauri notes, “I wanted the film to look further into shared memories and experiences, launching us into a world that explores a deeper, almost cerebral connection between a group of people sharing synchronised movement.”
“I’ve always been fascinated by the late 80s to mid 90’s rave scene, if I could teleport I’d go right back to Fantazia 1992,” Rose adds. “I love watching old YouTube videos of these parties. Everyone looked so free. I wanted to capture this energy in the Synchronicity video. A group of friends escaping city life in a 1996 BMW convertible, leaving London behind. That feeling when you’ve been driving for hours, floating through a void and then you find your destination.”

Gengahr, Bully, Priestgate and Deadletter have also joined the line-up.
She’s also announced her new EP ‘Higher Than The Sun’.
“It’s a little more leftfield than some of my other records but a world in which I think is important to my project.”
It follows the release of her ‘Synchronicity’ EP.
