Live Review: Carmouflage Rose teams up with George Maple for 'Let Me Down' + announces national tour

23 August 2018 | 9:32 am | Emma Jones

Named as one of our Artists to Watch in 2018, Carmouflage Rose is picking up steam to end 2018 on a high with his debut EP and huge tour.

There's no denying that rising hip-hop juggernaut CARMOUFLAGE ROSE has gone from strength to strength since the release of 'Late Nights' last year. The single saw him catapulted to the national stage, going from local Brisbane rapper to one of the most hyped acts in the country - and rightly so. In a landscape that is constantly shifting and evolving, with artists trying to keep up with trends and fads, Carmouflage Rose uses his strengths to his advantage to stand out from the rest and it's because of this that he has taken his rightful spot at the top.

Today, the Carmouflage Rose camp has shared a bunch of good news for Rose fans everywhere, with a new single, a national tour on the horizon and a release date for his EP. Due out October 12th, Carmouflage Rose's highly anticipated EP is named TASTE, and will surely elevate him even higher as one of the fiercest contenders in the hip-hop game, and this has only been cemented further with his new single today, 'Let Me Down' featuring the inimitable GEORGE MAPLE.

A slight touch on the brake pedal, 'Let Me Down' shows off a new side to Carmouflage Rose we haven't quite seen yet. Maple said of the collaboration, "I had been listening to ‘Late Nights’ on repeat while I was in the studio working on the album in NY. I sent Carmouflage a DM on Instagram just saying how I loved the track, he wrote back with some nice emojis and said I have a song I think you'd be perfect for a verse...I wrote the verse on my laptop at my Airbnb the next day and recorded it a couple of days later when my engineer had a window in LA. It was all very fast paced and It felt so natural. I'm very happy to be involved."
