Caroline Rose The Art Of Forgetting
Release Date: March 24, 2023
Label: New West
The time is now for Caroline Rose. Their last record, Superstar, was critically acclaimed and positioned Rose as the next big breakthrough in music. The Art of Forgetting is the result of Caroline's personal turmoil in navigating life.
Needless to say, the pandemic grinded all momentum to a halt following the release of Superstar, while at the same time, throwing Rose’s personal life into turmoil. The result of that turmoil is the fuel that fired the creation of their latest album, The Art of Forgetting. With the album, Rose took on the dual role of writer and producer.
The album encapsulates the feeling of experiencing recent memories, having them turn into old ones, and then ultimately forgetting those memories altogether. There is a romantic nature within the sonic landscape of this record. Tape effects and loops emulate the feeling of aging while the juxtaposition of modern acoustic-electronic textures, like lo-fi tape next to hi-fi granular synths, result in some of their most mature and honest work to date.
