You may remember Chelsea Rose from her time with Summer Twins, which she fronted with her sister Justine. Now she's back as a solo artist. Her latest single is pure pop. I usually try to avoid admitting I like a pop song by saying it's a hybrid, but "Down the Street" is a pop song. While it's a very modern indie pop song, it's layered heavily in 60's style pop, along with bossa nova and jazz. This helps give it a more timeless feel, and helps cushion the blow of liking a pop song from those of us that are bigger music snobs. But, if you're not too self-conscious to love a pop song, there's a lot to love here.
Chelsea Rose says of her new song:
"'Down The Street' was written as a sort of pep talk for myself, and any other artists that might be struggling to connect with their vision and keep it alive. It's one thing to have a great idea, but it's another thing to actually bring it to life and be able to share it with the world. I hope this song serves as a reminder to persevere - to keep putting in the work and the time, and to keep putting your heart into what you do; it will surely be worth it."
