Drawing comparisons to Mazzy Star, Angel Olsen and Stevie Nicks is an Australian singer-songwriter Gena Rose Bruce. Her intoxicating brand of reverb-drenched, smoky dream-pop has been leaving audiences in Australia spellbound for the past year. Having just released her gorgeous debut album, Can’t Make You Love Me, here in the UK last month, we thought it was about time to introduce you to her with this fuzzy, upbeat, yet pensive track. Driven by sonorous, interweaving guitar lines that cascade over pastel synths - capturing the conflicting emotions within a break-up, Rearview is a stirring and total delight. Loved by Triple J in her homeland, she has already picked up global support from NPR, KEXP and KCRW in the US, as well as Radio X and The 405 here in Blighty. She has just signed to ATC Live, and was going to bring her mesmerising and smouldering live performance to SXSW and then the UK this May before the pandemic hit, so we will have to wait a bit longer to see her, but it will be worth the wait. Undeniably cool, with a voice you can easily get lost in, Gena Rose Bruce is an alternative star-in-the-making, and perhaps destined to appear on the Bang Bang Bar in Twin Peaks too.
