Single: M Rosenbaum – Smiling In Your Face

‘I’m gentle / I’m a monster’

M Rosenbaum is a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist based in Copenhagen. ‘Smiling In Your Face’ is her latest single, it’s a confessional and raw track that is reminiscent of artists such as Waxahatchee and Sun June. It is beautifully recorded and produced; it maintains an endearing level of intimacy regardless of its polished and full nature. The song build to a crescendo on a couple of occasions, breaking out into a run and lyrically shifting gears towards a more defiant destination with standout lines such as the almost Cobain-esque passage –

“Hanging out inside my head
Shut the fuckers up and give the go ahead
Live on credit

I’d find it hard to die
just like everyone I know”
