Miki Rose is back with Right There, a sultry, funked out cut which sees the London/LA artist furthering her credentials as one of the British nu soul revolution’s most interesting young artists.
“At the time I had just finished writing the Over & Over EP, and thought the XOXO EP was done but then Giorgio Oehlers sent over this lovely instrumental and I wrote the song automatically,” says Rose.
“It was inspired by my journey as an independent artist. Right There is my personal anthem. ‘Stay steady hustlin’ til the opposite of struggling’s right there’.”
The track sees Rose in lofty form, in which pensive instrumental and vocals come together in streetwise harmony. It’s a gorgeous slice of post R&B that feels completely of its time. The singer-songwriter is an artist to look out for.
Check out the video for Right There below, directed by Henry Dean. Featuring no video footage, the project is made up entirely of 8000 still photos.
“The editing process was very long and arduous, it took me two weeks to simply sort and organise all the stills into a workable situation,“ says the British director.
“It was all one big experiment, inspired by the internet and progression of technology. You’ll notice the video is split into three sections – one that has a 16mm look, one with a VHS look and then one with a more modern, cinematic look. It was a wild art project but I think it paid off!”
