If we could only imagine that one day we would be listening to some electronic-classical music, groovy jazz and mysterious dark-pop, we’d say we’re dreaming. But luckily we have Rosie Tee and her Chambers.
Rosie Tee is a Birmingham-based contemporary-classical composer and singer-songwriter who creates her music based on a dreamy imaginary, highly sensorial and scenic, a fictional and complex world, almost musical-style. An example of that is Chambers. The song came out a month ago, presenting an enormous engagement with synths and electronic effects. The song gets a more ethereal environment in this edit version and probably it gets more abstract and surreal also. To contrast with that, Rosie put out her live version of this snarky track, recorded at Abbey Road Studios with senior music engineer Andrew Dudman (and that detail only makes it more mystic). The artist and her band, formed by herself on vocals and glockenspiel, Tom Harris on synth and keys, Dan Cippico on bass guitar and Kai Chareunsy who’s in charge of the drums, here perform it in a different way since the first chord.
The notes feel more organic and so do the environment; Rosie sings without any voice effect which is a big difference from the original edit version. All the instrumental is slowed down and the deep synths have been changed by orchestral sounds, played by RIOT String Quartet and a bass that sometimes plays jazzy and other times tries to defy deep electronic. The song is unpredictable and its mood varies from colorful thoughts to the darkest unknown, and that’s the reason why it has been said that Tee’s music is something like “genre-defying”.
