Upbeat swirls of indie-pop flutter amongst emotive lyrics. Yet again, Rosehip Teahouse swoon with latest sad bop Regretting It. Gorgeously distressed acoustic guitars marry beautifully against lead vocalist Faye Rodgers’ lovelorn lyrics, as we drift along in this dizzy daydream.
A wonderfully intricate songwriter, Faye is able to wrap sincerity and truths within her music. Yet there is undeniably such a wholesome care to her craft. With lyrics so unwavering and pertinent; carefully and delicately delivered. Such sweetness is derived from a conscientious nature, resulting in the glorious music we are led to behold from Rosehip Teahouse.
The ability to convey sadness with uplifting music is no easy task, certainly if you want to do it well. However, Rosehip Teahouse have balanced this to perfection. In one hand cradling the emotional weight of the track, and in the other ensuring the track remains bubbly, by nurturing its musical sound to light acoustics and a pop of synths.
Little whistles and claps provide Regretting It with a kind-hearted lift. Helping soothe an affirmation in my mind, that despite the majority of us continuing to experience difficult feelings and struggles at the moment. If we try our best to hold onto a little positivity and happiness in our lives, then somehow we can get through this. However small and gentle these little pieces of happiness may be.
Regretting It is available to stream on all platforms now via Sad Club Records

Rosehip Teahouse are back with a beautiful, woozy track written in isolation by lead vocalist Faye Rogers. Always sharing messages of positivity and kindness, Faye is a movingly brave lyricist who sings openly of our innermost human emotions and fragile experiences. Her latest track is a glowing beacon in dark times. Her vocals soar on the DIY single, and it is a delight to listen to.
A slice of indie goodness, soothing and soft. It highlights a tender, delicate subject and wraps it in sweetness.
Faye of Rosehip Teahouse has a gorgeous gift of comforting listeners through her music. ‘It’s The Wrong Time’ is about those self-destructive thoughts that often invade our minds when we are on our own, and linger. Faye has written and performed the song to raise awareness that we are not alone in encountering these frightening feelings, despite feeling like we might be, and to help those who may be struggling during such a strange period of our lives.
Everything about this song is beautiful; its vocals, its meaning, the subtle backing music. The track is simply made, but truly glows. A slice of indie goodness, soothing and soft. It highlights a tender, delicate subject and wraps it in sweetness. Faye’s voice is set against twinkling sounds from a keyboard, which compliments the serenity of her latest single, and swirls us around in a lullaby haven. Although ‘It’s The Wrong Time’ does have lyrics relating to unnerving thoughts, worry and fear woven within it, the song is subtle and so caringly delivered by Faye, it is a beautiful safety net rather than a trigger. Personally, I believe a lot of listeners will find solitude and peace within this blissfully blended track.
I commend Faye for once again having the boldness and bravery to record such a touching, emotional song and perform it with such wonderful composure.
If you enjoy listening to Rosehip Teahouse’s latest single, please do go and listen to their other singles on Spotify, and tune into any livestream sessions Faye is performing on Instagram. Often, you will be able to hear unreleased music that the band are working on, and I assure you these are equally as stunning. The band hail from Cardiff, and have performed a string of gigs locally and further afield over the years. Next time they are playing near you, it would be wonderful if you would go out and see them live. Their shows are completely mesmerising. I featured them as one on the best, emerging Welsh bands that you need to know about, back when I first started my blog in December 2019. You can read that here if you like.
