Jules Maxwell has a new single out via Archangelo Recordings, “A Rose On The Road (At The Traffic Lights)”, featuring Polly Scattergood. Next to the title track it also holds a remix from Glowlines.

“A Rose On The Road” first appeared as an instrumental on Jules Maxwell’s 2022 album “Cycles”. The title however had originated from a suggestion made by Polly Scattergood and, after the “Cycles” release, she and Jules continued to develop this vocal version.

Jules Maxwell is a multi-instrumentalist composer and songwriter. He plays keyboards for Australian band Dead Can Dance and in May 2021 released an album with Lisa Gerrard, entitled “Burn”. In 2021 he also released “Nocturnes” on Archangelo Recordings, a collection of instrumental pieces, much of it written in collaboration with the UK dance company Vincent Dance Theatre. This was followed in 2022 by a second volume of instrumentals entitled “Cycles”.

Polly Scattergood is a British-based indie electronic artist and was signed with Daniel Miller’s Mute label. She has released four studio albums, three under her own name and one as a side project called onDeadWaves with Mercury-nominated MAPS. She set up her own label and studio, Future Paradise, based on the Kent Coast and released her last album and EP through FP. Polly’s latest full-length album was “In This Moment”. She is currently in the process of writing her fifth studio album.

Here’s the video for the track.

And this is the single itself.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
