Rosa Nutty is a songwriter from Dublin. Since the 2015 release of her EP Bunny she has been making her mark on the music scene, both here in Ireland and overseas. Her songs are relatable - definitely to those of us who have experienced heartbreak anyway (can I see a show of hands…)
A soothing but sombre guitar serves as a perfect backdrop to Nutty’s poignant lyrics and soft vocals, which is all further enriched with a subtle but moving set of harmonies. Her most recent EP, Pips, was released to a packed out room in The Workman's Club last month, where we caught up with her afterwards to have a chat about songwriting, the satisfaction of releasing material, and playing in Reykjavik.
The songs that you write and sing feel a bit darker and moodier, with an atmospheric, alt-rock feel to them - not like Radiohead, but with an essence of Radiohead’s darkness in there. Would you agree with that?
