Vive La Rose
“A gifted troubadour… a twinkling paean to the quiet joys of escapist daydreams.” - PRS' M Magazine
“Expansive music… enveloping and absorbing.” - Bandcamp
Edinburgh-born artist David Luximon-Herbert - aka Vive La Rose - returns with his captivating new album For She Who Hangs The Moon, out now via Gestation Records.
His most poignant and personal release to date, each track on Luximon-Herbert’s forthcoming album soars with cinematic soundscapes and an emotive storytelling charm akin to the likes of Nick Drake or Ryan Adams. Upcoming single Schiehallion glistens with a truly mesmerising musicality, whilst Luximon-Herbert’s grit-fuelled vocal warms your soul with its heartwarming lyrics. Talking about the album, Luximon-Herbert elaborates, “a lot of the record is about trying to figure out who you are and where you want to be, and figuring out your little corner of the world. Hopefully there are threads of hope and optimism that weave throughout the record, both from a personal and societal perspective”. The album also features an enchanting string arrangement by Colin Elliot (Richard Hawley/Slow Club) and The Up North Orchestra, drums by Nicky Francis (Mono Club) and was co-produced with Oliver Betts (The Duke Spirit).
Vive La Rose was created by Luximon-Herbert in 2014. Originally from Edinburgh, Herbert moved to London where he played under his own name and in different bands for a few years. With Vive La Rose, he wanted to wipe the slate clean and branch out from being a predominantly acoustic artist. Herbert has already received praise from the likes of Billboard Magazine, The National, PRS’ M Magazine and BBC Radio Scotland’s Roddy Hart, Iain Anderson and Ricky Ross to name but a few.
For She Who Hangs The Moon is out now via Gestation Records.
