Southend-on-Sea’s finest indie-surf band, Rooskin have just released their brand new single, ‘Eloise’, and it’s easily their best yet. Hailing from the coast of Essex, UK, the five-piece band combines an array of influences to create a weave of psychedelic, surf-infused indie-pop that will impress and entertain in equal measure.
Rob and fellow frontman Matt Wallace have been playing music together since school until they formed Rooskin in 2018 and found drummer Felix Foilleret before they embarked on a UK support tour with Tugboat Captain. Rob then met Buddy Caderni (keys) and Pete Anderson (bass guitar/production) while working on tours throughout Europe.
Featuring a burst of carefree and feel-good vibes, ‘Eloise’ establishes itself as an indie-pop anthem, layering hazy guitars with an intimate, heartfelt melody. Drawing from influences such as The War On Drugs, Twin Peaks and Real Estate, the new single pushes boundaries and perfectly defines what Rooskin are all about.
Frontman and songwriter Rob Humm explains the creative process behind the single, “‘Eloise’ is a tune all about summertime spontaneity. We started working on the track straight after releasing our debut EP ‘Honey Spells’, but then we were plunged into a lockdown waterboarding. Eventually, we got to record in February 2021 and managed to get it ready in time for summer.”
The Rooskin crew have more exciting things in the pipeline, including a collaboration feature, some new grungy-surf tunes, a festival at a theme park and a whole host of indie-pop goodness.
