“It’s about feeling lost and searching for meaning…” – Clash Magazine
Bristol born singer-songwriter ROTHWELL is poised to release her new single with the arrival of ‘Quarter Life Crisis’ on 31st Mayl. An evocative journey hand-in-hand with upbeat instrumentation, accompanied by a seductive and seemingly effortless soulful delivery, ‘Quarter Life Crisis’ is a catchy contemporary electro pop anthem. Produced by luminary pop genius, Tim Powell, renowned for his work with production house Xenomania where he helped craft classic hits for Girls Aloud, Paloma Faith and the Pet Shop Boys.
Rothwell says: “Quarter life crisis is about feeling completely and utterly lost. Growing up in the times that we do; no money, shitty jobs, mental health issues and with the vast impact social media has on our lives, I feel like my generation has had it pretty rough. Its about how crippling it can be to be thrust into a world you know nothing about but are expected to excel and know exactly who you are all whilst looking like you’re having a fabulous time.”
Following on from her recent hit singles ‘Left Me At The Party’ and ‘Velvet Heart’, described by Clash Magazine as ‘buoyant breezy pop matched with soulful, beguiling vocals’, syncs on Love Island and over 3 million streams of her last single ‘Darling’, Rothwell has been billed as one to watch in 2019.
Having written her first song at the age of 12, the self-taught guitarist supported herself through a string of jobs, before enrolling into the College of Music in Leeds. Rothwell has supported Justin Bieber on his ‘Purpose UK Tour’ and played to sold out crowds at both Hyde Park’s British Summer Time and the Isle of Wight Festival.
Rothwell can’t wait to get back on stage later this Summer, noting that “playing live is the best part about being a musician. This year is going to be MEGA and I can’t wait for all of the gigs and festivals across the country!”
‘Quarter Life Crisis’ is released on Bright Star Records and available to stream and download on all services.
