Rose Dougall “Take Yourself With You”
Been I while since I’d heard anything from/by Rose Dougall (aka Rose Elinor Dougall), former Pipette and renderer of many lovely solo tracks – including personal favorites “Another Version of Pop Song” from 2010, and “Start/Stop/Synchro” from 2009.
Now, here comes new single “Take Yourself With You”, posted today on her Facebook page via amazing online journal The Quietus, and the promise of a new full length in 2015. “Take” is 4:00 and change of light as air, shimmeringly glorious sophistipop. Think a more lush, less fey Prefab Sprout or early, pre-clubland Everything But the Girl. Dougall’s voice, which has always had the ability to be light as meringue without being saccharine, is in full bloom. A welcome return.
