Dance-pop darling ROZES has consistently beeen churning out single after single for over a year now. We’ve gotten stellar solo efforts like “Canyons” and “Famous,” as well as high-profile collaborations with Galantis, Cash Cash and Nicky Romero, all leading to the final piece of the puzzle: The Numbed Up EP, a 4-track bundle of all her tunes to date, out today (July 13).
The start-to-finish solid collection includes “Famous,” “Canyons,” the Nicky Romero-assisted “Where Would We Be,” and a brand new track: “Numbed Up,” featuring rapper NexXtthursday, the title track which finds ROZES struggling to find balance between her personal mental health and the lifestyle of being a touring musician.
“Don’t get confused – this song is about MENTAL HEALTH,” ROZES said in a statement. “This is me struggling with the balance of new medicines, a demanding career and balancing work/life/friends. It’s the struggle of trying to be ‘normal’ when you know your feelings aren’t. This is me talking to myself, wishing my mind could just be on my damn side for once 💊♥️ listen with care. It’s real life for me.”
“Don’t you want to be on my side for tonight/ On my side for tonight?/ Don’t you want to feel more alive for tonight? More alive for tonight?,” she sings across the hazy, trap-infused electro-pop production. “Cause I Know you want to fight it/ Don’t try to fight it/ Don’t you want to be on my side for tonight?“
It’s a nice change of pace for ROZES, who tends to stick to her signature dance-pop lane. I’m into it – Listen below!
