What A Boost
Released: 5th April 2019
DINKED Edition features exclusive alternate glow in the dark screen-printed cover. Numbered, signed, and limited to 300 copies.
Rozi Plain has announced her new album ‘What a Boost’ will
be released on 5 April 2019 on new label home Memphis
Industries. The ten track album was self-produced with the
help of a long list of musical friends including Kate Stables,
Jamie Whitby Coles, Neil Smith (all This is the Kit), Chris
Cohen, Joel Wästberg (Sir Was) and Sam Amidon.
Rozi Plain has been making music since her brother taught
her a few chords on the guitar aged 13. Raised in
Winchester, she spent a few years studying art and
painting boats in Bristol, where she began collaborating
with long-term friends Kate Stables (This Is The Kit) and
Rachael Dadd among many others on a thriving local
scene. It was there that Rozi made her first two albums,
2008’s Inside Over Here and 2012’s Joined Sometimes
Unjoined, each works of deliciously sad and beautiful pop
full of heart-wrenching harmonies dotted with unexpected
instrumental flourishes. Released in April 2015 on Lost Map
and featuring contributions from Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor
among others her last album Friend was a deeply
meaningful and wonderfully measured ode to memory,
place, companionship and music’s remarkable power as an
emotional salve. A companion album of remixes,
unreleased tracks and radio sessions, Friend Of A Friend,
was released in 2016.
Almost permanently on tour, Rozi has taken her joyous live
show on the road countless times around Europe, the UK
and the USA, and has toured with a host of alt-folk
luminaries from Devendra Banhart to James Yorkston.
She has appeared at festivals including SXSW, Iceland
Airwaves, Glastonbury, End of the Road, Latitude, BBC
6Music Festival and Green Man. As bass player and
backing vocalist in Rough Trade signed This Is The Kit,
Rozi has been touring the world for the last two years,
including opening for The National in the UK and North
