The Rosie Taylor Project are a new Leeds band whose first official single comes out shortly on Bad Sneakers Records but whose demos are being circulated to whet our appetites. They formed in August 2006 as an alternative country rock band but these songs show that they've progressed far beyond that in the short time they've been together. It's sun-warmed folk, reflective and soulful, reminding this listener of the tiny gems turned out by the Fence Collective or the Go Betweens, inhabiting a world where electric guitars gently buzz, a trumpet softly blows and the vocals are a murmur among pristine melodies. Pick of the four songs here are 'A Good Cafe on George Street' and the forthcoming single 'Black and White Films'. These songs are subtle but insidious and soon enough you'll find yourself humming these tunes (but softly).
