Deriving their name from a small star in the northern constellation Andromeda, ROSS 248 is a mysterious, Seoul-based songwriter and producer, who employs an old-school songwriter’s approach with each and every song, which showcases the voices of an eclectic array of vocalists.
Influenced by a number of different genres, including electro pop and indie pop, ROSS 248’s career started in earnest producing for other artists in her native South Korea. But increasingly,. the Seoul-based producer increasingly desired to express herself through songwriting — with a continued focus on production.
A influential trip to Liverpool helped the South Korean producer further establish her own sound and approach. Her debut single, “Somewhere Only We Know” received airplay on BBC Music Introducing Merseyside last year.
Her latest single “Blinded by your light,” a slow-burning and vibey pop gem that seems indebted to neo-soul with the song being featuring wobbling synths, glistening Rhodes, a sultry Quiet Storm-like groove paired with Vanessa Murray’s achingly tender and yearning delivery. Continuing upon the previously released “Sunshower,” “Blinded by your light” channels the feelings of stability and tranquility within a stable and fulfilling relationship. As the South Korean producer explains, the song’s main messages is “if you love someone more than anything, you see the deeper hopes and positiveness in your life.”
