Rose Gray has a solo lockdown party in the video for her cover of Saint Etienne's 'Nothing Can Stop Us'

Rose Gray has covered ‘Nothing Can Stop Us’ by Saint Etienne.

It marks the 90s-inspired East Londoner's follow-up to recent single, 'Same Cloud'.

“’Saint Etienne is my favourite band," she explains. "I’ve fallen in love with their music. 'Nothing Can Stop Us' was originally released in 1991, when the UK 90s dance scene was just being born. It’s an era of music I am fascinated by; I wasn’t born but maybe somehow through my mother’s eyes I partied to it. 

"This song entwines dance music, 60s samples and incredible melody and melancholy. The break beat, orchestra 60s samples similar to Burt Bacharach and the spoken word melody of Sarah Cracknell - are all magic to me. I wanted to cover this song because it feels like an ode to this incredible era for UK dance music. I want to bring back this sound but … 2020 style!”

Of the video, she adds: “I wanted to create a video that captured mid lockdown, being at home, being weird in a little flat. My best friend was housesitting at this beautiful quirky flat in Covent Garden. The walls bright yellow, 360 views of London town. We filmed all day, I danced around and ate loads of pasta. 

"The original concept came from my favourite film, ‘Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow’ with beautiful Sophia Loren. The ‘Today’ part of the film Loren’s character spends days lounging around at her penthouse flat, looking after her cat. Hopefully it brings a bit of joy to the world in this bizarre time.”
