Listen free to Rose Elinor Dougall – Without Why (Start/Stop/Synchro, Come Away With Me and more). So it is with Rose Elinor Dougall, who joined polka-dot popstrels The Pipettes as a teenager and left four years later as a young woman with a drive to strike out on her own. The 24 year-old recently unveiled her sparkling debut album, Without Why (Aug 2010), which presents her as the new face of smart, sophisticated indie pop, full of baroque twinkles, killer melodies and heartfelt lyrics.
Walking out on mid-noughties retro-pop trio The Pipettes must’ve been a tough decision for Rose Elinor Dougall (or, as acronym fans might prefer, RED). Her departure in 2008 came after Monster Bobby’s protegees had finally finished touring their debut album and, by her own admission, were making quite a nice living, thank you very much. Their polkadot uniform, synchronised dancing and catchy indie disco floor fillers were perfectly timed, and everyone seemed to be having a lovely tim. xcept Dougall. It’s interesting stuff that throws up surprises at every corner, but none of it’s immediate, and releasing as uncompromising an album as Without Why is possibly even braver than leaving The Pipettes to begin with. But that’s exactly what Dougall wanted from her debut – the polar opposite of everything her old band stood for. This time she’s doing things her way.
If we categorized albums in the same way as movies and books, Rose Elinor Dougall's debut, Without Why, would be filed under "romance. All of the songs are focused on love and relationships; the arrangements are wistful, melodramatic, and lovelorn. Her voice, elegant and disarming in its directness, conveys a gentle heartbreak even when she's singing about being in love. The sound is sweeping and slick, but also springy and sharp, a contrast similar to early-90s recordings by Morrissey and the Sundays. Even the darkest moments of the album sound like a girly fantasy.
