Rose Lubransky - Single Review: Head Over Heels

18 May 2021 // A review by Danica Bryant

Wellington’s indie dream girl Rose Lubransky’s latest bedroom pop single, Head Over Heels, is another unique production with home producer and frequent collaborator BushJungle. The song is undoubtedly catchy, with a more anthemic structure and sound than their preceding work.

Lyrically, Lubransky’s exploration of a modern day crush perfectly narrates both the excitement of romance, and the embarrassment of feeling vulnerable as a result. Her imagined scenes of “running through flower fields” are quickly followed up with the self-deprecating admission that she may be too “cheesy”, answering the niche of young people today’s almost satirical views upon love.

Lubransky and BushJungle’s production embraces its homemade stylings. The song focuses on the jaunty tone and rhythm of the electric guitar, whilst featuring the simple electronic drum beats and easy backing vocals common to the indie genre. Whilst the vocals may be slightly over-distorted at times, Lubransky’s voice ultimately carries the track with a genuine sense of joy, and it is clear that the pair delivered on a specific creative vision. One of Lubransky’s cited influences, Clairo, is the most direct comparison to be made.

What Head Over Heels does best is set the glittery atmosphere its lyrics dream up. For fans of bedroom pop, Rose Lubransky’s latest effort is worth the listen, blending well with the era of Soundcloud discographies and lo-fi production aesthetics.

Kaela is not one to let herself be forgotten. Returning from a brief hiatus, her new single Obsessions delivers an otherworldly exploration of her struggle with OCD.
Michele Ducray - Single Review: Midnight
27 May 2021 // by Danica Bryant
As a self-professed “fan of the peculiar”, it’s somewhat surprising that Michele Ducray’s first single Midnight is such a carefully cut pop song. Midnight is an unusual but not unwelcome match to her intriguing magic and circus-themed branding.
Hunter Davison - EP Review: Headspins
15 May 2021 // by Danica Bryant
Hunter Davison’s debut EP, Head Spins, explores the love, lust and mental health struggles of young people today. It is a vulnerable collection of songs with a knack for interesting rhythmic and melodic ideas.
