Rose Elinor Dougall - Indietracks

The sun's just setting as she takes to the stage, everyone squints. Near to where I sit a girl draws pictures in her notebook. The rain has gone and its all summery.

People are queuing to enter the Indietracks site on a Friday night.

Rose Elinor Dougall on stage is pretty neat. She suits the wide stage and huge audience better than she does the confines of venues like the Enterprise.

There's a dark air of celtic about her sound. Could do with more overdrive for my tastes,but its still has that arch sound to it, the rest of the band is kind of secondary to her voice. Although the leopard print cat-suited bass player is pretty neat.

She has a little of the Help Stamp Out Loneliness to her vocals, that it could be used for opera, but right now its indie.
