Artist & Event Info

Rozi Plain comes to VU following the release of her latest album ‘What A Boost’ on Memphis Industries.

Refined during a year spent touring the world playing bass in This Is The Kit, ‘What A Boost’ nurtures its homely roots and then blooms into a record that isn’t strictly about life on road but is undoubtedly, and beautifully, shaped by it. Textural, repetitive, propulsive, the whole piece plays out like a soundtrack to the world flying by; “I feel like you do a lot of looking back, looking forward, looking at your life, and looking out of the window.” Rozi reveals.

‘What A Boost’ is also the product of the singular spaces within which it was created. First there was the Old Dentist’s Studio around the corner from Rozi’s home in Clapton, an RAF base in Suffolk and a day off in L.A recording with Chris Cohen. A week of one-off collaborative performances as part of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner of The National’s PEOPLE in Berlin opened up the songs. Then back in London, the album really came together at The Total Refreshment Centre, a somewhat legendary fixture in the flourishing London jazz scene and the hub of Plain’s creative world.
