21 QUESTIONS: AUSSIE SINGER/SONGWRITER ELIZABETH ROSE

erose
For a long time, we had trouble putting a face to the name Elizabeth Rose after hearing her feature on Flight Facilities’ 2013 Soul Train-reminiscent jam “I Didn’t Believe,” and since then we haven’t heard the singer/songwriter without a tinge of soul ever since that first taste. Dropping her EP, The Good Life, on January 17, the five-track project teeters more toward a straight-forward electronic production, but it’s Elizabeth’s vocal stylings that adds on soulful inklings as heard on the Flight Facilities collab — to put it simply, think of an Australian Katy B. We caught up with Elizabeth for a quick 21 questions sesh, check out our run-down with her below.
