Gentle folk-pop vocals against a backdrop of ambient lo-fi production
Like a number of her Fence Collective label mates, singer/ songwriter Rozi Plain has a penchant for subtle yet obscure arrangements, slightly left of centre of the ethereal melodies that populate her latest offering Joined Sometimes Unjoined.
The fractured tinkering of her gentle vocal style provides the perfect backdrop for a soundscape often augmented by ambient lo-fi production, coupled with weighty percussion element that adds a solid dynamic to the otherwise hushed tones of the her distinctive mutterings. Juxtaposed with her fluid guitar fingerpicking - Rozi comes across like a young Joanna Newsom shaking off her little girl lost persona, while adopting a ballsy yet ambitious take on Syd Barrett's introverted musings on the finer things in life.
