“Wanting to be part of a creative industry is like standing in a ballet studio, surrounded by mirrors with all eyes on you. And then there’s you, constantly watching what others are doing (social media) and feeling numbed by it. But then you realize that the others are not your harshest critic, it’s you who’s setting the bar that high,” states Rosemary & Garlic about 'Their Eyes On Me'.
'Their Eyes on Me' follows Rosemary & Garlic’s first single, 'Television', an intimate, playful, and delicate piece of dreamy indie folk, inspired by contemporary folk artists such as Patrick Watson, Bon Iver, and Sufjan Stevens. Both tracks are off the forthcoming album, A Room of Ones Own, which is set for release on March 17th.
Rosemary & Garlic started as a duo consisting of singer/guitarist Anne van den Hoogen and keyboardist/guitarist Dolf Smolenaers. Together, they made tranquil, lilting indie folk with a melancholic atmosphere. They self-released their first EP, 'The Kingfisher' in 2015. Over the months that followed, their song 'Old Now' accumulated millions of plays on streaming sites, and the EP became a folk best-seller on Bandcamp. Their full-length debut, simply titled Rosemary & Garlic, followed in early 2018 via Nettwerk. The arrival of 'Television' marks a promising return for Rosemary & Garlic yet sparks a new, fresh resonance for the project. The track sees Anne van den Hoogen coming into her own as a purveyor of lush and lilting indie folk music. 'Television' was mixed by Ian Grimble (Daughter, Axel Flovent, Bears Den), who also mixed Rosemary & Garlic’s upcoming sophomore album out next spring.
