On her latest album, WE.ANIMALS
, experimental pop singer-songwriter Lila Rose probes the relationship between humans and nature through tracks that showcase her throaty, passionate singing. The singer’s music evokes beloved Nineties and Aughts acts such as Tricky, Massive Attack, and Portishead, who, like her, cultivated a sense of suspense and foreboding with dark, sparse beats and tense instrumentation. Rose performs at Slim’s in San Francisco on Saturday alongside Lizzie Karr, Peter Feliciano, and Pamela Parker. Her live performances have been deemed a sight to see, as she incorporates intricate lighting and set designs that add a next-level visual component to her tracks.
