1. Acid Rose
Acid Rose are an indie pop acoustic duo based in Adelaide, South Australia. Formed in 2016, they started to play live venues and house parties throughout Adelaide. After writing a few originals they uploaded their first Soundcloud release, ‘Actually Not Bad’, in 2018.
With a soft strumming, finger picking guitar beneath distinctive harmonious and emotional vocals, their sound is reminiscent of their influences, including Stevie Nicks, Amy Winehouse and Florence and the Machine. Pulling at the listeners heartstrings, their music is filled with honest, raw lyrics with a hint of passion and melancholia.
The duo started Acid Rose after an instant musical connection and mutual appreciation was discovered from first playing together. After securing a semi-regular spot at The Two Sisters, Acid Rose honed their craft at performing live. Consequently, it became apparent that music is what they wanted to do, and so they began recording demos. They are currently working on writing and recording more original music.
