Oh my, a song after my own heart, George Rose has given us butterflies with his new love song “i’m bored x”.
I think for the youth at least of this extended time at home, there has been a lot of virtual flirting. Where I go to school students have created student spoofs of all our favorite reality dating shows, there have been matching surveys, friends admitting long time crushes, and more! The lines “You know I’m pretty shy, we get on FaceTime and you say...I think you are looking so impeccable” are just so sweet and completely capture the first virtual Zoom moments folks are having, existing and new couples alike.
This cute lovesick bop is paired with a homemade video featuring Rose and co-writer and friend Max. This song and video screams sunshine and crushing and I am ready to blast this retro bubble gum pop track until I find love.
From Rose: Me and Max started writing this song as the start of lockdown, we thought it would be fitting to record a video for it with all our buds during lockdown! Here are the results. We hope whoever's watching and their families are safe and healthy x
A cathartic release, George has crafted his own sound sitting somewhere between Coldplay and Kanye. George's music is hopeful, bleak, and honest storytelling, sprinkled with a little bit of love. It has to be heard to be believed.
