Rose Ette debuted their fresh take on indie-pop in 2015, and have since established themselves as one of Houston’s most exciting new bands. They captured their guitar driven sound on Jungle, their debut EP on Miss Champagne, by mixing the shoegaze influenced sounds of the Jesus and Mary Chain with a girl-group vocal style to create something lo-fi, melodic and unpretentious. Since then, the band has spent most of their time perfecting their craft, opening for the likes of Deerhoof, TYVEK, Fred Thomas, Dressy Bessy, Peach Kelli Pop, La Luz, Chris Cohen, Baio of Vampire Weekend, Shilpa Ray and Austin psych-rockers The Black Angels at the grand opening of White Oak Music Hall. In 2017 the band released a single, entitled Skin, which received praise earning them a slot on Free Press Summer Festival along with Frightened Rabbit, Portugal the Man and The Shins.
Regarding Rose Ette:
“I don’t know what sub-genre of indie rock Houston’s Rose Ette would fall under, possible twee, but no matter what you want to call it, they’re damn good.”
- David Garrick, Free Press Houston
“Rose Ette is the perfect band for the kind of early spring Houston has been having: warm, breezy, ideal for picnic or patio listening.”
“I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t love this album from start to finish, and would I be lying if I said I didn’t think that you’d feel the same way. In six songs, Rose Ette enters the Houston music scene with a bang, capturing your attention while holding it for the entirety of the release.”
“The four-piece’s 2015 debut EP, Jungle, secured them a good standing in Houston’s growing crop of talented young indie-pop bands, drifting between the dreamlike melodies of ‘Hideaway’ and fuzzier affairs like ‘Thunder.’”
“The track, which finds the band stretching their legs away from the bedroom pop sound on their debut, and taking things into a more focused and melodic nature. With hints to The Wannadies and The Cardigans, the song has nineties throwback all over it without sounding like it was ever lifted. The way in which the guitar seems to create an almost secondary vocal presence alongside Teresa Vicinanza’s voice is pretty mesmerizing, while the snappy beat and rhythmic bass lines keep the upbeat track in your head for days."
