Rodes Rollins

Rodes Rollins emerged last year as vocalist on Buraka Som Sistema co-founder Branko’s ‘Out Of Sight (So Right)’. Her own debut single, ‘Young & Thriving’, takes her out of dance music and into more comfortable territory. Led by a shimmering guitar line and drums provided by Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa, her vocals drape over the track.

“I wrote ‘Young & Thriving’ in the middle of the night last summer in LA”, she says. “It was one of those songs that almost came to me in a dream. My upcoming EP ‘Young Adult’ centres around the formative experiences from my youth. So ‘Young & Thriving’ felt like the perfect song to lead with, because it’s a reflection on the formative moments and relationships that make up one’s youth”
