Rosehip Teahouse - Fine EP
Published: 11:10 am, January 14, 2021Words: Edie McQueen.

Dream pop newcomers Rosehip Teahouse arrived onto the Cardiff scene like Glinda the Good Witch in her sparkling pink bubble, bringing with them the perfect twinkling lullaby pop to calm the psyche. Following a productive quarantine and a series of releases through summer, their latest offering, 'Fine', is packed full of twee, cinematic landscapes to match their name, their music just as redolent of gingham pinafores and flower gardens. 

Listening to the EP is like falling down the rabbit hole with Alice, lead singer and creative mastermind Faye Roger's effervescent vocals projected onto mature layers of sound. Youthful, innocent statements are scattered throughout the EP; in 'No Gloom', they muse 'maybe one day we'll go on a date' amid a series of confessional sentiments we've all felt before in the grip of first love. But even amid the dreamy glamour of the honeymoon phase, crystallised in the twinkling guitars, the song does not shy away from the darker, more painful side of love, cradling the expanse of emotions without rejecting the harsher ones. 

This is an EP to float in, maybe even to drown in.
