Feature: Delilah Rose – Moxie
Boorloo / Perth-based singer, songwriter, guitarist and performer Delilah Rose unveils her new album of 70s meets 2022 rock and roll goodness, with Moxie.
When it came to the name of the record, there really was no question with Moxie (noun: “force
of character, determination or nerve”), as in order for this album to even exist, Rose was going
to need Moxie – which as it turns out, she has in spades, managing not only to record and
release the album (and the myriad of behind the scenes work involved), but to also craft an
exciting and engaging full live show around the LP.
Across its ten tracks, Moxie sees Rose drawing on a wide range of inspirations from the world of
70s rock, fusing a range of genres and styles in a cohesive, complementary manner as the
album’s energy ebbs and flows. From slower, powerful ballads like I See You or the emotional
Mumma, to the anthemic sounds of 100% Woman, or the rollicking, upper tempo energy of
Jack’s House. Album focus track Bitch Fizz, one of the faster ones on the album with its big
angular guitar hooks and solos, pounding relentless drums and pummelling bass line, is the
closest thing to a “title track” on the album and perhaps best sums up the record’s themes with
the repeated line “the girl’s got moxie”.
From slower, powerful ballads, emotional wrenchers and anthemic sounds. Moxie marks a pummelling new chapter for Delilah Rose.
Moxie is available NOW.
