London-based singer-songwriter Gorran, unveils his latest enlivening track entitled "Roses". Showcasing deep impassioned vocals and rich striking synths, the song is an ode to Gorran's little sister and also the highly inspirational activist Greta Thunberg. It’s a motivational anthem spurring this generation to dream big and shape our future for the better.
Thematically, "Roses" exposes the suppression of aspirations, especially in young girls. “Young women such as Thunberg are paving the way for a whole generation of people to make positive changes in our society and so it’s time we listen to them and take them seriously. I think having a little sister myself, who at the time of the writing of the song was only 12 years old, made the subject matter even more poignant for me,” Gorran confides.
Merging diverse elements of dance, pop and R&B, his polished production and effortless vocal tone resonates with listeners across the globe. Gorran’s musical muses include Billie Eilish, Lauv and Post Malone, striving to craft music oozing with raw authenticity and emotion. With themes of sadness, joy, nostalgia and fear, Gorran is an innovative artist, encouraging fans to be honest with themselves and do what makes them happy. Check out his empowering and impactful release ‘Roses’ out now.
