"... bouncy electro-powered party punk..." - Test Tone Three

More energetic than a sackful of crack fuelled terriers and with more hooks than a pirate convention, Rosie are an enigmatic electro rock four piece from the North East. Recently hailed as Radio 1’s unsigned band of the week with their single “Midnight”.
They have a large northern fanbase due to the popularity of their live performances, which include confetti/sweet firing cannons, extravagant costumes and more rave paint than you can shake a glow stick at. This live show combined with a bizarre energetic sound plays into their favour, drawing curious festival goers to whichever tent or stage they might be at.
Headliners of Cultureshock Festival 2012, a slot previously held by Lethal Bizzle, Little Comets, and the Young Knives, Rosie are no strangers to moving a large crowd. The performance included 20 + backing dancers, 5 extra drummers, an MC in a wheelchair, a nun, Jesus, a stage invasion of every other main stage artist, and of course, a cannon that fires sweets.
