Canny lasses Emmy-Kate Montrose and Marie Du Santiago launch new band Rosita with first proper release...

Rosita, the band featuring former Kenickie girls EMMY-KATE MONTROSE and MARIE DU SANTIAGO, release a new single, the ‘SANTA POCA’S DREAM’ EP on April 24 through ZubiZaretta/Grand Royal.

The single is the follow-up to the band’s low key debut ‘Live It Down’, which was released in the summer of last year, and will feature three new tracks, ‘Santa Poca’s Dream, ‘Down Here’ and the instrumental ‘Demon’.

A spokesperson for the band told nme.com that the EP was “post-Kenickie, and certainly poppy.”

The band also do a full UK tour in April which calls at Bristol Fleece & Firkin (April 27), Manchester Roadhouse (29), Glasgow King Tuts (30), Derby Victoria Inn (May 2) and Wolverhampton Little Civic (3). The band will also play a London date on May 4, although the venue is yet to be confirmed.
