ROOS released the brand new single+video ‘In Praise of Idleness’ which was inspired by the Bertrand Russell art piece of the same name. It features Kelli Scarr (Moby) and was filmed in Yunnan Province, China.
What happens when a multi-format artist combines with the willingness to communicate with others, through different dimensions in audible experiments? We think that person will turn out like ROOS.
This release, Standards Vol 1, is a song cycle exploring the aftermath of failure, from resistance to transcendence.
ROOS’ vocals is just so dang good in taking us up and down the undulations. And it serves up a whoop-ass of a demonstration, reminding us of ABBA, in her tone and presentation (for some dang reason). It’s a comforting voice. It envelops you. It says, ‘It’ll be better tomorrow’. It’s just like your older sister confirming and helping you cope. And who wouldn’t want that in their life, right?
“ROOS works with a large community of musicians, including Andrew Aged (Inc No World), Kelli Scarr (Moby), Austin Beede (Grateful Shred), Sam Gendel (INGA), Eliza Callahan (Jack and Eliza, Purr), Jimmy MacBride (Herbie Hancock), Luke Sellick (Russell Malone) and the Occidental Community Choir.” (label)
