UK-born, Berlin-residing, Martha Rose releases her fourth album Close to Close. The multi-instrumentalist’s newest LP envisions a dream-like world, floating on layers of soothing synth pads that weave throughout the album. The soundscape of the project strengthens the rich lyricism, developing a feeling a vastness to the described intimacy and longing.

But don’t think that this release is solely melodic dream-pop ballads, moments when the electronic drum kit picks up the pace and leans more into the pop roots provides the listener with some great and danceable tunes, like the single Heart Still Beats 4 U. It showcases the true versatility of Martha Rose, and her talent at engulfing the listener in a deeply personal album.
