Rosko are the new kids on the block with their tongue in cheek, honest, fresh sound.
The band officially came together in a local Wetherspoons just over a year ago, and after getting a huge response from their live performances, are back with a new video for their single ‘Snifter’. The single is taken from their EP, ‘White Stilettos’, and we have the exclusive first watch today. The four track project is an insight into the boy’s lifestyle. Complete with animated lyrics full of attitude, and striking guitar riffs.
They have a uniquely British sound and their music effortlessly glides through the broad tastes and experiences of a modern 90’s kid. Lead singer, Bruce, originally started out making beats inspired by The Alchemist and Madlib. Influences now spawn from Brit-pop to punk, grime to hip-hop, and everything in between; Oasis, The Clash, Mike Skinner and Ghetts are cited as contending influences.
Their new single, ‘Snifter’, recounts a true story where the boys were left to escape the flat of shady characters and their shady substances. The music video, shot by Victor Kovachev, takes inspiration from classic Kung-Fu flicks; with Rosko literally showing new sides to their characters to bring life into the track.
Rosko will be putting on an event to celebrate the launch of their first EP ‘White Stilettos’. Keen not to put on a traditional gig event, the night will be curated by the band themselves in a gallery space in Hackney Wick. Extending beyond just music, Rosko will showcase their work alongside projects from some of their talented friends.
