With a pixie persona and a DIY attitude, Rosemary Fairweather is a potential successor to the crown of dreamy, high pitched pop currently held by fellow Canadian Claire Boucher of Grimes fame. Fairweather is definitely more reserved but her songwriting and the intricacy of her soundscapes makes her just as powerful a force.
Her new track "Too Low" combines elements of Lana Del Ray and cleverly engineered electronica with sparse but effective sampling, allowing the listener to delve into the mind of an insomniac/creative. It ebbs and flows like a changing season or the transition from night to day: a sort of twilight existence not inhibited by sleep but also not tied up with the tribulations of the day to day
Fairweather has this to say about the track: "'Too Low' was written over a long period of unrelenting insomnia... it means something personal to me, but I hope people take something away from it after listening."
