Silver Rose is the new solo music project of Carla Sariñana, who is the co-founder, songwriter, and bass player for the rock band Rudio Rosa. Sariñana is based in Mexico City and speaks both English and Spanish, a skill she uses throughout her recent self-titled EP.
On Silver Rose, Sariñana sings three songs in English and three songs in Spanish, an even split that shows off her Mexican roots and her American blossoming. In the summer of 2015, the artist lived in Los Angeles and it is in this region that Silver Rose budded, a project that is influenced by Sariñana’s love of the shoegaze and dream-pop genres, as well as her talents in the bluesy, alternative rock field.
Silver Rose was originally self-released this past summer, but then got picked up by the UK-based independent label Presana Recordings, which redistributed the EP in November in the UK and this month in the US.
The single Take Me Home gets the Lana Del Rey-like music video treatment, with Sariñana immersing its visuals in her love of 1970s-era style and glamour. The lure of the cinematically-steeped Golden State runs through the faded, filmed moving images of swaying palm trees and blooming flowers, home movies of Sariñana outside her adopted LA home and at the beach, and found footage of old-school ballroom dancers.
