Bristol-based indie-folk mastermind Rozi Plain was born Rosalind Leyden in Winchester, UK. The unassuming charm of Rozi’s live show has led to tours across Europe, the UK & USA. Notable tours include supporting Devendra Banhart (who fell for her debut album “Inside Over Here” – on Pictish Trail & King Creosote’s Fence Records – and named it one of his albums of last year), James Yorkston and Viking Moses, as well as appearances at festivals such as Green Man, End Of The Road and Fence Record’s flagship event Homegame. Whether performing alone or joined by an assembly of her regular musical allies (including François & The Atlas Mountains, This Is The Kit, Rachael Dadd and Sleeping States) her songs possess both fragility and a sense of plucky charisma in one fell swoop.
￼The original version of “See My Boat” is taken from Rozi’s second album “Joined Sometimes Unjoined”, co-released by Fence Records and NeedNoWater on October 22nd 2012 and features the talents of François Marry, of François & The Atlas Mountains on guitar.
This release contains 4 remixes of See My Boat. The first is by Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, followed by two Parisian takes on the track; one by regular NeedNoWater cohort Plaisir De France (who is also one half of Slove) and the second by Tristesse Contemporaine, who’s debut album was released this year on Dirty / Pschent and has lead to much acclaim and a support slot with Pulp at the Les InRocKs festival in November. The final remix comes from newcomer and NeedNoWater signing Clas Tuuth, whose debut album is due for release in early 2013.
Rozi is currently on tour in Europe with This Is The Kit and Jamie Harrison, and begins a UK tour in October, including an album launch show at the Wilmington in London on October 19th.
