[DEBUT PREMIERE] Jude Rose – Lose

Jude Rose debuts with the broodingly smooth single “Lose”. Floating along with minimalistic production and atmospheric elements, Jude Rose’s voice cuts through and glides above it all as a distant piano and pulsing guitar move the song along. Vocal layers ebb and flow, building around heartbreaking melodies that flow effortlessly.

An impressive debut from an artist we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for!

In their words:
Lose started on an acoustic guitar. It started from me learning new Jazz chord voicings. I also wanted to try a 3/4 timing to give it a circular feel. The beat came about because the time signature was unfamiliar. The final beat was my first take. The lyrics and vocal melodies came soon after. I like to come up with lyrics along with the melody. The idea for the song had been floating in my head prior to the studio session. The idea of the chorus promising that ‘I won’t lose you’ and the verses stating all the things I’m okay with losing as long as I can keep you. I tried to keep post production pretty simple because I wanted the song to do the storytelling. This made the mix and master easier as the project only consisted of 7 tracks. I wanted it to feel authentic.” -Jude Rose
