Ivy Rose - Ive Been Watching You
22 Jan 2021
Ivy Rose Releases Debut Single "Ive Been Watching You", co written by PNAU's Nick Littlemore
Lab78 (the label from PNAU’s Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes) unveils their new signing, Houston’s Ivy Rose, and her debut single ‘I’ve Been Watching You’. Premiered on triple j's Good Nights, the track was co-written by Littlemore and Donnie Sloan (of Empire of the Sun’s ‘Walking On A Dream’ fame), ‘I’ve Been Watching You’ is a haunting love story in which the hypnotic voice of Ivy Rose is elevated by wide acoustic guitars, atmospheric synths and warm, emotive production.
Comfortable behind an acoustic guitar, Ivy Rose’s voice connects you equally to her warm heart and unfathomable heartbreak, with a sound could be described as mixture of Stevie Nicks and early Lana Del Rey. Discovered by Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes in 2017, the three spent six months writing original material landing on a soundboard of avant-rock lead by Ivy Rose’s sorrowful storytelling.
A year passed, and Ivy joined Littlemore and Peter Mayes for two weeks in Los Angeles where they recorded and finalised a debut body of work for Ivy Rose. Lots of time had passed which included some dramatic life events for Ivy. It was at this point, Littlemore and Mayes identified that through her challenges, Ivy had developed into the artist they’d envisaged; composing complex and powerfully challenging works of art. “There’s something universal about the way Ivy sings, the way she connects. She is a story in herself,” Nick illuminates.
