WATCH ‘SWING SHUT’

Rozi Plain has just shared her new video 'Swing Shut', from her latest album 'What A Boost' just released to much praise on Memphis Industries. The song is Rozi's sliding doors moment as she sings "if the door swings shut then we would both be stuck then what would we do?" over a shuffling jazzy beat. Says Rozi of Swing Shut:

“Swing shut was started in LA with Chris Cohen . Continued in London and Glasgow and finished in Chicago. I think it thinks about doors opening and closing between people. Responsibilities to do with keeping the doors open or knowing when to close them. Who's keeping the key? Who's kicking out the door wedge? Who's haunting who? Relationships changing, leaving and moving. Opening up and shutting down . Wanting some real talk. Getting real talk and not wanting it. The feelings of urgency to hold on when things might feel like they’re slipping away. The worry of being misunderstood. Trying to keep calm.”

Directed by Tom Lock Griffiths, the video plays on the duality of ‘Swing Shut’, capturing Rozi in a juxtaposition of moods. as Tom explains:

“Rozi’s brilliant track Swing Shut, has this great duality, it’s something you can dance around your kitchen to but also has this melancholy edge, a hint of anxiety, so we wanted to have two Rozi’s, sometimes at odds but also in harmony. We both really like greens and blues too.”

Refined during a year spent touring the world playing bass in This Is The Kit, ‘What A Boost’ nurtures its homely roots and then blooms into a record that isn’t strictly about life on road but is undoubtedly, and beautifully, shaped by it. Textural, repetitive, propulsive, the whole piece plays out like a soundtrack to the world flying by; “I feel like you do a lot of looking back, looking forward, looking at your life, and looking out of the window." Rozi reveals.

Rozi and her band will have plenty more time in the tour van this year. Following a sold out UK tour in May, you can catch them at the following summer festivals and a full winter jaunt throughout October and November, including Rozi's biggest headline show to date at Village Underground on 15th October.
