Amsterdam riser ROSA is operating out on R&B's evocative left-field.

Inspired by classic artists like Dev Hynes and the new innovations opened up by Frank Ocean, he wants to up-end convention, and broaden the conversation around masculinity.

Raised by a single mother in the Dutch city, his childhood memories revolve around the radio, soaking up classic neo-soul bumpers and Golden Age hip-hop.

His own work is equally striking, pursuing doggedly individual aims while communicating in an open, refreshing fashion.

A full EP is incoming, with ROSA sharing his gorgeous, immersive new single 'BLOW', all billowing digi-production and that sensual, sonorous vocal.

Out now, we've got first play of the video, and it's another vital glimpse into his creative universe.
