• about Rosie Carney (UK)

Anglo/Irish singer-songwriter Rosie Carney returns with “dad” the electric first single off her upcoming second LP, 'i wanna feel happy'. Born from the anxiety of pandemic-amplified social media pressures, 'i wanna feel happy' explores Rosie's personal mental health struggles against the backdrop of navigating a musical career in 2022.

In the three years since her debut LP 'Bare', which NPR described as capturing “the weary grace of a survivor who’s located the source of her strength” Rosie has continuously raised her profile with select collaborations including Lisa Hannigan and The Paper Kites. She has amassed over 200 million streams and counts Aaron Dessner, Lily James, Robin Pecknold, and Cigarettes After Sex among her followers. Rosie's 2020 EP 'i dreamed i was the night', was co-produced with Thomas Bartlett, known for his Oscar and Grammy-nominated work with Sufjan Stevens and Florence & The Machine. In 2021 she covered all of Radiohead's 'The Bends' during lockdown.


• about Vancouver Sleep Clinic (AUS)

Conceptualising the material and laying down the foundations for the album in Australia before relocating to London at the beginning of 2021 to record, Bettison found himself in a creative space he’d never been in before. Since 2016’s Vapour EP release, Vancouver Sleep Clinic quickly became a festival and live favourite, ensuring that Bettison was kept consistently on the road or in the studio fleshing out an already promising catalogue of work.

For a burgeoning artist, a growing profile and sense of needing to meet demand can be chaotic. To put that pressure on someone going through the formative and transitional stages of leaving adolescence behind for young adulthood too, the whirlwind can almost be addictive. And so, when the world was halted in 2020, Bettison was able to - for the first time - stop and take a breath. “Because I’ve been making music since high school, ever since I graduated I’ve been in this relentless wave after wave of things happening.” he explains.

The writing process for the new Vancouver Sleep Clinic album did not come easy, though. Time off to breathe brought with it anxiety surrounding a loss of the spark. What if the creative feeling could only exist and thrive with the chaos of being constantly on the grow? Bettison admits that though he did experience periods of darkness where mentally, he would be tough on himself for not having that same hunger for writing or music-making; when it did come back, the love for the craft was refreshed and ready to be explored.

We can hear this renewed dedication to structure, production and execution throughout Fallen Paradise: from the sweeping electronic and vocals elements of album opener LOVE YOU LIKE I DO; the stripped back and emotional THE WIRE, and the late-night R&B vibes of the album’s title track.
