RoZe Releases Debut EP Greener Grass And Shares Video For New Single Saturday

22-year-old songstress RoZe has shared her stunning debut EP Greener Grass with the world. The release also comes alongside the uplifting lead single Saturday and accompanying music video, directed by Charlene Jones. Fixed with an infectious synth pattern which boasts a playful and euphoric tone, the singer’s latest release is her most heartwarming release yet. With the her candid vocals leading the track with lyrics of self-doubt and vulnerability, she gradually builds to a climax which erupts into a chorus of positivity partnered with ascending keys and pulsing drum beats, which are richly tied together with RoZe’s smiley sounding melodies.

Talking about the track, RoZe says “I wrote this at a time where I felt like I cared more about everyone else than they cared about me. The first two lines of the song describe that perfectly. But when I found my person, I felt seen and loved, like I mattered! This song describes the transformation from insecurity, feeling unlovable and alone, to feeling like you can fly and everybody’s happy to see me!” The video, directed by Charlene Jones, see’s RoZe at the world’s most isolating birthday party, where she is the only guest. After realising no one is attending, she goes on to take comfort in her own company by doing the things she loves, such as: Dancing, music and tarot cards, a simple yet incredibly joyous concept.

Across five tracks that range from tender Fantasy, spunky Survival Mode and eccentric Voices In My Head the singer’s sleek and syrupy vocals convey the emotional resilience she needed to reach greener pastures. Amidst twinkling soundscapes, zigzagging basslines and snappy beats, the singer reclaims her past and reaffirms her plucky spirit. “We obviously all know the saying about greener grass – it means a better place,” she says.

On the release of her debut EP, RoZe comments: “From walking on broken glass to walking on greener grass, it’s about moving from darkness to light. It’s about going from my dark, traumatic childhood to finding the everlasting light, love, and freedom within myself. It’s time to release myself from the versions of myself that I created in order to survive. We always seem to focus on how other people seem to be in a better situation, how the grass is greener on the other side, when it’s actually something you can change within yourself. I always found myself looking at how the grass is greener in someone else’s life until I realised I had neglected my own grass. You can only make your own grass greener by giving it enough love and light. No matter how dark it gets, seek the light within yourself, and the grass will be greener, and the world will be better.”

Music has always served a deeper purpose in 22-year-old singer-songwriter’s life. The Amsterdam-born artist began pursuing a career in music when she was just 14, sharing her moving covers online while making London her creative base and second home. Fast forward to 2024, and millions of listeners have since discovered her enchanting renditions of hit songs through social media – now eager to hear music in her own words for the first time. “Most of my songs are about going from darkness to light,” she explains. “I just want people to see that light.”

Boasting the crisp, radio-ready vocals of pop artists like Lorde, Sigrid and Tate McRae, RoZe artfully balances candid moments of introspection with a youthful playfulness – a talent that comes easy to an artist who wrote music as the antidote to her tumultuous home life. She will often quite literally dream up her songs as she’s falling asleep, when her unconscious mind will reveal lyrics steeped in her truest feelings.
As RoZe prepares for the world to hear her true voice for the first time, it’s also a time for closure. “I’m very excited to close this chapter and help others,” she says. “If the listeners relate to a song or if my voice touches them, then I’ve reached my biggest goal. I just want to help people and heal the world.”
