Picked right from her latest release What A Boost, Rozi Plain’s ‘Swing Shut’ sets the tempo for the new album as a chiming, musically sophisticated record. Combining flowing melodic vocals with new-school jazz brings about a beautifully peaceful tune that would go perfectly alongside a summer day’s stroll.
Prompting the listener to reflect more on life and the importance of looking to the future, rather than reminiscing about things gone past, ‘Swing Shut’ juxtaposes sombre lyrics alongside a lilting instrumental to really pack a punch with its meaning.
Rozi Plain explains that the new album draws on homely roots while focusing on a life on the road, and how undoubtedly beautiful existence can be. Plain expands: “I feel like you do a lot of looking back, looking forward, looking at your life, and looking out of the window.“
