Rosemary & Garlic Share “Frames”; Watch Official Music Video
May 22, 2020 BY Nettwerk
Dream-pop/folk project Rosemary & Garlic, solely lead by Dutch singer Anne van den Hoogen, return with their first new track in nearly two years. Recorded earlier this year with mixing done by Ian Grimble (Daughter, Mumford & Sons, Bear’s Den), “Frames” is an atmospheric slice of delicate melancholy which Rosemary & Garlic have finely crafted over the past few years, all underpinned by van den Hoogen’s strikingly ethereal vocals.
“The song and the video are about daring to change direction. To break the frames around a fixed picture and let curiosity take the lead”, explained van den Hoogen. “Looking at the images we shot in Spain, I see myself in beautiful colors and frames. But I hardly dare to move. You can see I’m not comfortable, you can see my moody hands and the doubt in my face. I chose to break these images down and tried to find a more fluid one. Visually we also broke the marble walls down and followed the cracks and gravel towards the sand of the beach. There were the sea and the horizon, the freedom of new possibilities…“
Rosemary & Garlic are currently working on more new music, more details to be announced over the coming months.
About Rosemary & Garlic:
Rosemary & Garlic recorded and self-released their debut EP The Kingfisher in 2014. Since then the popularity of the band’s brand of indie-folk infused dream-pop has grown, gaining attention and a fanbase across the world. “Old Now”, taken from the debut has amassed an impressive 34 million-plus streams and placed prominently on key streaming playlists. 2018 saw the release of their self-titled debut studio album via Nettwerk Records (Passenger, The Paper Kites, Boy & Bear). Contemporary artist Gregory Euclide, who is most famously known for creating the artwork for Bon Iver’s critically acclaimed second album, created the album’s gorgeous and striking artwork. They have since then appeared at renowned international festivals such as SXSW (US), The Great Escape (UK) and Reeperbahn Festival (DE). Since the departure of co-founding member Dolf Smolenaers, R&G is now a solo project of singer Anne van den Hoogen.
