A google attempt to learn more about Yorkshire’s Blue Roses might leave you a little bit lost. With similar artists The Blue Roses, and The Blue Rose band clogging your search results, you might never get a chance to learn more about Laura Groves – she’s the voice behind the self-titled Blue Roses debut album that drops today from XL recordings. Expect to hear some powerful vocals seeping from your speakers on this one, an experimental sound that marries Joanna Newsom with St. Vincent. Blue Roses is self-produced, recorded in various bedrooms and bathrooms across Shipley, though how she fit a Steinway into the bathtub is yet to be determined. Check out the folk-meets-electronica-inspired track “I Am Leaving” from her new album, streaming below.
