‘Coffee Love’, is the first single from Martha Rose’s forthcoming second album Undress & Dive After.
About the song Rose says: “I wrote this for a friend of mine, at a folk festival in England. I was feeling very glum, and I had no money. We were camping and I was really unprepared, but she had a coffee filter cup and made me coffee every morning, which I was clearly disproportionately grateful for in that moment.”
The accompanying music video was directed by musician and film maker Lisa Klinkhammer. She developed the concept based upon a vision of playful 2000s music video dance moves and dreamy minimalism. The video revolves around the song itself and Martha Rose as a performer, reflecting her playful and tender aesthetics. Together with performer Lizzy Sell and musician Candelaria Saenz Valiente, Martha and Lisa choreographed a dance that the three women deliver with a little wink throughout.

Rose learnt to play the violin as a child, and studied English and German literature. She began writing songs after she was given a guitar wrapped up in newspaper by her first boyfriend. Her debut album, Spit, came out in 2016. She has been working extensively with other musicians as a multi-instrumentalist and has supported artists such as Kevin Morby, Ilgen-Nur and Joan as Policewoman. She has performed and recorded with Berlin-favourites such as Fenster, Magic Island, Jaakko Eino Kalevi, John Moods and Stella Sommer.
