Check out the video premiere of ‘Knight in Shining Armour’ from Liverpool’s Roseblume. It’s an earnest song of unrequited love, disarming in its heartfelt and direct sincerity. There’s a restless rhythm and a foot-tapping beat, creating a sense of urgency that drives the song. Rosenblume’s melodic voice elevates ‘Knight in Shining Armour’, drawing the listener into his narrative of intimate memories and romantic feelings. The song was written quickly, pouring out of Rosenblume in just a few hours, and, sonically, it seems to flow in the same way.
Rosenblume explains how the song was created: “I kind of just came up with it and the rhythm of it came naturally… Lyrically the song was inspired from hearing that a girl I’d been in a long term relationship with had found someone else. It cut me a little bit deeper than I thought it would and a sudden realisation that I was no longer her ‘Knight In Shining Armour’ hit home.”
‘Knight in Shining Armour’ is the lead single from the debut album ‘Rosenblume’, due out on 24th September. This full-length release has been a long time coming, following on from the well-received EP ‘All Through the Fire, All Through the Rain’, which was championed by the likes of Bob Harris back in 2015. Impressive streaming figures were matched by support slots for some great artists, including Robert Vincent, Luke Sital-Singh and Jack Savoretti. The new songs promise to be equally compelling.
Rosenblume says of working with producer Alec Brits and the process of putting his first full-length album together: “After recording and producing the first EP myself I really wanted to bring in a producer for the album. I felt having someone else during the creative process would really help me push boundaries and broaden my vision a little. Alec is such a talented guy and definitely hears things differently than I do. Having him there and having me try things I wouldn’t normally try really helped the creative process and I’m super excited about how the tracks have turned out.” Like the other songs on the forthcoming album, this is a heartfelt, personal song and all the better for it.
