Katie Rose Announces Single, "Beginnings"
“Beginnings”, the new single from singer-songwriter, Katie Rose, liberates the often crippling weights of anxiety and depression. The single pays homage to a friend who took their own life and draws back a bulky emotional curtain, shedding new light to reveal glimmers of prosperity. Cascading waves of melodic piano and choir-backed vocals shine through concaves of the mind that were once lonely and trapped in the dark. “Beginnings” is out for release June 28.
“Beginnings” acts as a guide through a tumultuous storm of anxieties. After losing a friend to suicide, Rose reflected on her own experiences with depression and wrote a song telling others what she wished someone would have told her during the darkest hours. The single’s ever-growing volume and profound tempo stand tall like a pillar supporting a broken soul. “Beginnings” starts off with just Rose’s quaint, fluttering vocals and delicate piano, but then crescendos into a full percussive choir of friends coming together. With immense surety, the solidarity extends far beyond the measures of a song. It reaches out to every part of the spirit and mind, offering a hand to anyone who has been left abandoned by hope.
