Melbourne’s Gena Rose Bruce releases sexy smoke-rock beauty The Way You Make Love and it’s magnificent. Shady, drawling, shot through with grungy pulses and pops, Gena takes you deep down into the moment to emerge again satisfied and mightily impressed. Her first release since 2015, Gena sounds renewed, confident and wholly ready to drop some ‘reviews’ of her own. Oh the way you make love, is a talent, never in my dying days have I seen anything like, she smoulders lyrically in the song’s opening. Gotta give credit where credit’s due, and someone out there’s getting a 10/10 from Gena.
“When songwriting I always draw from my own personal experience, with exaggeration of course,” she says. ‘The Way You Make Love represents a newfound confidence in myself as an artist and as a woman. When I was younger I would have never had the nerve to write a song so forward.”
Go girl. Catch Gena Rose Bruce and band, featuring some extra talent from local bands Baby Blue and Jade Imagine, at the single launch on April 12, details below.
