Brisbane based Hip-Hop artist Carmouflage Rose has released a new track 'Sele'. The new song from the Australian rap maverick coincides with the announcement of his biggest national tour to date.
Carmouflage Rose wrote 'Sele' after he visited his birth country of Zimbabwe this year for the first time in nearly a decade. There he re-connected with his family and culture, before returning to his studio in Brisbane to record the track.
"Reconnecting with my roots and family gave me a new direction and focus with my music", Carmouflage Rose says. "Experiencing the studio culture in Zimbabwe helped me approach the way I record in a way that demanded my best. Over there you are in a small space with five other rappers all trying to get on the same beat, so you have to be at your best and own it first take."
'Sele' is an old English term for "good fortune", and the song is all about living in the moment and not taking life for granted.
Carmouflage Rose has been seizing every moment in 2019 so far – touring with FOMO Festival at the beginning of the year and Groovin The Moo in May, all while writing new tunes at a prolific rate.
He's continuing the momentum that began with the release of his debut of single 'Late Nights' in 2017 and the 'Taste' EP featuring 'Wildflowers' in 2018. With over 16 million streams amassed across Spotify and Apple, he supported the likes of Alison Wonderland, A$AP Ferg, Metro Boomin, DAVE and Wiley, alongside his own headline shows.
In the process, he caught the attention of Creative Artists Agency – the international group who book some of Carmouflage Rose's biggest musical inspirations including A$AP Rocky, Cardi B, Beyonce and Earl Sweatshirt. It was announced this week that he has signed to the agency, who will help spread his hook-driven Hip-Hop further across the world.
To celebrate the release of 'Sele', Carmouflage Rose is heading out across Australia playing his biggest venues as a headliner to date.
