Anna Rose
Behold A Pale Horse White Pony Records

Article written by Kev W - Jul 20, 2012

From Anna Rose's 2010 debut album 'Nomad' we learnt that the New York singer-songwriter was a little different from the glut of female solo artists out there, and now she looks to go one better with second album 'Behold A Pale Horse' which will be with us later in the summer. The album's title track also provides us with its first single, and true to her word the influence of greats such as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin can be felt all over this track, which comes accompanied by a suitably moody and desolate video shot in Snowdonia and featuring, er, a black horse.

One thing's for certain, and that's that Anna Rose has a fine set of pipes and she puts them to good use on this rumbling and forbidding track, coming over like Florence if she'd sold her soul to the devil. 'Behold A Pale Horse', despite hardly being a potential summer smash, has a large catchment area. Rose takes in blues-rock as the base and there's some searing guitar work, but also creeping in are elements of folk, country, psychedelia and alt-rock. Rather than leaving her in a musical no man's land, there's enough guts and power here to impress fans of each. The album could be a belter.
