Martha Rose Addresses The Universe In Charming Lo-Fi Pop Gem “It Doesn’t Matter”

Berlin-based multi instrumentalist and songwriter Martha Rose always had a love for delicate minimalism in her music and producing an EP entirely on her own felt like the next logical step here. Trying To Read The Sky is the name of it and It Doesn’t Matter is the really sweet closing track of that release. Like a sweet lo-fi pop lullaby the song caresses the listener with warm and sweet melancholia. The song is an ode to the constellation of Orion, observed in a slightly different place in the sky every evening on Martha’s walk home from the studio. And that became a constant theme as she worked on these songs. She explains: “I recorded this song in a kind of trance induced by the depths of winter. The snow was settling in, the canals were frozen, the moon was huge, and Orion seemed to look down at me every night, telling me not to worry about my little human problems – none of it mattered. I felt a deep sense of tenderness, alongside loneliness. I was grappling with strange emotions, swinging between a soft and comforting nihilism, and my determination to love myself, love others, and appreciate all the wonders of the cosmos.” Well, nothing to add here. The charming all visual retro CGI clip is another sweet reason to fall in love with this song. The EP is out now on indie label Martin Hossbach.
