Rotana was born and raised in Saudi Arabia but moved to Los Angeles to pursue her music and herself, a path that didn’t exist where she came from. If you take FKA Twigs’ attitude, Kate Bush’s musical vision and the on the pulse musical sound of Banks, then add in a taste of ‘the personal is political’ feminism then you’re partly on the way to appreciating Over You.
Rotana’s rich vocals almost duet with a heavy but tight bass, though never overshadowing the personal lyrics, with the track as being about ‘the naked truth of the different women Rotana became in the process of getting over her last love’.
In addition to being a musician, Rotana has a keen eye for image and has amassed over 40,000 followers on Instagram. Over You is currently streaming on Spotify along with her previous releases The Cure and Daddy.
