Drowned in Sound

It was not too long ago that Caitlin Rose's debut EP, Dead Flowers, hit the fair shores of the UK. It was a great little release (not too little, too late, thankfully, as it was released in the US in '08) that served only to whet my appetite for what could come. I wanted more songs! Full band! Caitlin belting the tunes! A capella! I just wanted to see what this taster could blossom into. Thankfully, I didn't have to wait long as Caitlin has been hard at work shaping what would eventually become her debut, Own Side Now.


Earlier this year, Nashville's Caitlin Rose attacked stale country assumptions and shook up expectations with brash rock 'n' roll attitude to accompany her hip-slung country-girl charm on her Dead Flowers EP. On her debut full-length, Own Side Now, Rose has traded in a handful of her volatility for straightforward indie-country pop song craft. And the trade has treated her well.
