Keel Her – Don’t Look At Me

Two years ago, the music of Rose Keeler-Schäffeler found its way into my heart. Her soundcloud resembles an almost unconscious stream of recorded ideas, tiny steps towards her inevitable (underground) stardom. I guess its pretty easy to understand why R Stevie Moore is one of her biggest fans: not only is she prolific but her artistry shares the same glorious lo-fi aesthetic.

Don’t Look At Me is her strongest work to date, vocals immersed in jangly beats, with nods to the 60’s girl-pop/Phil Spector era, sonically at least. Keel Her is a compelling, authentic voice with the ability to convey complex emotions into simple euphoric pop structures. What’s not to love?

Don’t Look At Me is released via Critical Heights on download and 7″ on 6 January 2014
