Sugar Plum" roughly a month ago, New Zealand songstress Rousseau is back with her latest offering called "Familiar", which also serves as the second taste of her upcoming debut EP, hello, i know you're busy, due out in early 2017. "Familiar" recalls conscious, complex artists like Banks, Lykke Li, and Fiona Apple, with the moodiness of Massive Attack. Once again Rousseau offers a polished, whip-smart slice of confessional dark pop that is easily winning over both listeners and tastemakers alike, thus making her an artist we should be keeping a close watch on in the coming year.
Speaking about the track, Rousseau states:
"It's about having an instant connection with a stranger, or someone you've just met; the excitement, the curiosity, the nervousness. It's like there's something hanging there in the space between you, like a spider web of shared memories, almost tangible but just out of sight. Or maybe it's an invisible mirror..."

"Familiar" is available now on iTunes.
