The English singing on some tracks is perhaps the only slight down-side on an otherwise fantastic album (like in Dead Can Dance, I prefer the female vocals to the male vocals). The first single San Song is probably the best track off the album -- a type of Robert Miles dream-dance song with chants and uplifting trance sounds. Clay People is reminiscent of Deep Forest, with a slightly more African pop flavour. 2)Desert Rose actually started unknowingly when Cath and Lars met in 2006 when they both attended a art & design study in Amsterdam, they soon found out they shared a common love for the same loud n’ sleazy music.
In 2007 they started thinking about starting a band together, but that plan never got past the talking and thinking stage, though they did record an acoustic song about our fucked up little society called “Septic Blues”, with Cath on guitar and Lars on vocals. In 2009 they got a little more serious and got in touch with guitarist Kerin through a mutual friend of Kerin and Lars. About a month passed when Cath was invited by Sharon, a bassist she met on the internet, to come and jam at her school with another guitarist. Cath invited Lars, and then they heard the guitarist couldn’t come so soon Kerin was invited as well.
That jam session meant the birth of Desert Rose, the first song “Suicidal Suzy” was made and since then more songs were written, and more are to come. The world will hear, see and smell Desert Rose.
