Description

Lost Map Records is proud to announce Rozi Plain’s exquisite third album Friend, which will be released on 4 May 2015. A spellbinding reaffirmation of the London-based, Winchester-born singer-songwriter as one of the most unique and original voices in UK alt-folk, Friend features contributions from Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor and members of Franc?ois & The Atlas Mountains among many others. It’s preceded by the single Actually, which won the Rebel Playlist on BBC 6 Music by 76% of the vote, and has been described by DIY Mag as ‘about the most gorgeous, all-encompassing introduction imaginable for this London-based songwriter’.

Following the release of Jogalong in October 2014 as a split 7” on Lost Map together with Rachael Dadd – a song hailed by Jo Whiley’s as her Favourite Thing of the Week on Whiley’s BBC Radio 2 show – Actually is the second track to be released from Friend and the album’s opener. Over a spare, snaking groove, Rozi reflects on ‘a difficult year, a tumultuous year’ in a fascinatingly elliptical lyric delivered as a kind of dialogue with the exotic birdsong melody of a vintage synthesiser. It’s a suitably intoxicating yet heavy-hearted introduction to Friend, which was engineered by Kristian Robinson (Capitol K), and features contributions from Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Gerard Black and Amaury Ranger (Babe / Franc?ois & The Atlas Mountains), Kate Stables and Jamie Coles (This Is The Kit), and singer-harpist Serafina Steer.

Tour support comes from Babe. Formed in the summer of 2010 by ex-Findo Gask members Gerard Black (currently with Francois & The Atlas Mountains) and Michael Marshall, along with Thomas Ogden and Amaury Ranger, Babe have been making music across the channel from their native homes in Glasgow and Bordeaux.
