Paris and London-based duo Rose Rose have released their latest single, “Sky Queen,” ahead of their upcoming EP. The 70s-style disco and house track offers a nostalgic, organic, and joyful atmosphere with groovy beats and funk-inspired melodies. Rose Rose consists of Samuel and Pierre, both self-taught multi-instrumentalists, who met over a slice of pizza in Paris 10 years ago. The French electronic scene of the early 2000s inspired the duo’s unique style, which blends disco, house, and pop.
“Sky Queen” follows their earlier release “Sugar Hill” in 2020 and “Pressure” in 2021, which brought the duo into the spotlight with over 300K Spotify streams and support from French publication Nova and national radio. The song takes inspiration from old master paintings’ depictions of angels and their attempt to change the narrative and highlight their admiration for a world with female angels. It’s a spiritual song that merges the concept of light and dark, hope, and sadness, reflecting the duo’s music style.
Speaking on their inspirations and meaning behind the new single “Sky Queen” Rose Rose wrote, “Sky Queen is a song about the angels depicted in old master paintings. These angels are usually painted as males, a representation we do not agree with, hence a title and lyrics that attempt to change an outdated narrative and highlight our admiration for a world with female angels. It’s a spiritual song in which we tried to combine the idea of light and dark, hope and sadness, an ambiguity we’ve always tried to suggest in our music.”
