Artist Profile »

Nov 26th see Rose Elinor Dougall support Chairlift at 229. In April 2008 she announced that she was quitting polka-dotted popsters The Pipettes. After four years as a founder member she decided that she é─˙didn't have any more to offer to the groupé─¨ and announced through that she was putting together a solo record. é─˙Another Version Of Pop Songé─¨ released on limited edition 7é─¨ through Scarlett records on December the 8th is the first fruits of this endeavour. Eschewing the retro, neo-girl group overtones of her former group, Another Versioné─Â sees Rose creating a year zero for herself. Using disparate influences, including Broadcast, Penguin Caf?ę Orchestra and The Silver Apples amongst others as a launch-pad, Rose has created a record in her own image, the only link to the past, that rich, identifiable voice. Produced by Lee é─˛Muddyé─˘ Baker, Another Version Of Pop Song, will take place alongside a full album in Summer 2009. In the meantime Rose has gathered together a collection of like-minded souls to play some shows.
