- Stability Mystery Rose 3:54
In an era of near-constant visual self-promotion, it’s the rare young person who remains more committed to the discipline of artmaking than the ensuing recognition. Mystery Rose is a 17-year-old indie pop artist who maintains relative privacy and image-control while growing up in Los Angeles, the epicenter of self-exploitation. She writes blues ballads informed by Amy Winehouse and throws them side by side with catchy, pop-punk hooks a la Kitten or Tacocat. Her music holds its own among those older contemporaries while still fresh in time with the current-day revival of 00s-style indie rock led by artists like Halsey, Charly Bliss, and DREAMERS. Mystery Rose’s music is produced by Dan West of Victory Way Studios in Burbank, CA.
Mystery Rose released three standalone singles in 2019: “Gossip”, “Eternity”, and “Arranged”, to a small but overwhelmingly positive audience. In 2020 she returned with “Passing Notes” and “Sunset Boulevard” (the latter with an accompanying music video directed by Steve Hanft [Beck, Elliott Smith, ICP]). This year, Mystery Rose plans to release her debut album Socially Distant (due out in Spring 2021) in both digital and vinyl formats. The album’s first single “Stability” represents its indie-rock side (Side A) while Side B leans more bluesy. The album is sure to be a complete collage of Mystery Rose’s versatile abilities, with professional orchestration to boot.
While touring is out of the question during quarantine, Mystery Rose aims to share her music digitally in the meantime: “My interest is really in creating the song. Not so much who sings it, but who listens to it and how that audience is impacted or affected by the poignancy. If other artists use my material, or if ordinary listeners are singing in the mirror, that’s cool for me. I get a kick out of being the creator, not necessarily the only performer. I hope my work is universal in its appeal and that many will want to perform it.
