SONG PICK: T & the Rex – Roses
The name T & the Rex may get you on the wrong track here: The T. is (presumably) Tilda Bergkvist from Sweden, a young singer, songwriter, and producer who makes a point to keep full control and in particular not turn to one of the 98% male producers who continue to dominate pop music. Her new song “Roses” is an infectious piece of bedroom pop, created with intentional minimalism.
Tilda gives us a sassy statement about the song:
“If Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band had a baby with Rex Orange County, Kite, and Beach House they would have ‘Roses’. However, ‘Roses’ is more unique since it’s entirely made by a teenage girl”
