Formerly of Perth, now of Brisbane, Delilah Rose grew up on country rock and has now transmogrified her music into ’70s bluesy burlesque swam-rock. Last year she released her debut album Moxie and its first single, ‘Thin Black Line’, reached #1 on the AMRAP charts. Rose was also nominated for West Australian Video Clip of the Year and West Australian Emerging Artist of the Year (BBCMF Awards 2023), was a Semi-Finalist for Unsigned Only (Int. Song Comp 2022) and included in the Top 30 for WAM Song of the Year 2022.
Now, to celebrate the first anniversary of Moxie, comes the video for ‘Like You Do Me’, which Rose describes as: ‘Love them, hate them and everything between, ‘Like You Do Me’ is about the constant push/pull we have with our lovers, partners and people in general! The betrayal, the wanting, the resentment, the forgiveness, the black, white and grey, the sex and the sass. People are the most FRUSTRATING but sheesh, when it’s good, it’s damn fine.’
The energy of Moxie is bundled up and transmitted via the video for ‘Like You Do Me’, which is having its premiere here today (see below) and which shows Rose on stage with the All Star Ladies of Rock in Perth at her last – sold-out – show before moving to Brisbane. So consider the video to be a microcosm of the rollicking experience of the album and, if you’re new to Rose’s work, an entree to her world.
