De Rosa are a band from Lanarkshire, Scotland. They are songwriter Martin John Henry (vocals, guitar), James Woodside (bass) and Neil Woodside (drums). They have released three acclaimed studio albums – Mend (2006), Prevention (2009), and Weem (2016) — on Glasgow's legendary labels, Chemikal Underground and Rock Action Records. De Rosa have toured in support of Mogwai, Doves and Arab Strap and have collaborated with Under the Skin author Michel Faber on the album, Ballads of the Book (Chemikal Underground, 2007).

Weem (Rock Action Records, 2016) is De Rosa's third studio album. The band wrote and tracked the album's 11 songs in a cottage in the Perthshire village of Weem before returning to the studio to mix with esteemed producer Andy Miller (Mogwai, Life Without Buildings, Songs: Ohia).
Looking to escape from their urban routine, De Rosa chose to record Weem in the isolation of the Scottish highlands. They have produced a collection of expansive, multi-layered songs where dark synth pop meets pastoral folk rock. Singer Martin John Henry’s vocals reveal a subtle and distinctly Scottish voice, exploring themes of community, ritual and reflection. Through this rigorously independent approach De Rosa have journeyed into new terrain and emerged with some of their most immediate and important music to date.

“The kind of parochial majesty you might encounter if The Pixies reworked The Go- Betweens' «Before Hollywood» for a documentary about the social history of Lanarkshire..." — Mojo Magazine, June 2006.

When asked about the importance of place in his lyrics, founding member and song-writer Martin John Henry stated: «I guess in some small way I’m trying to give post-industrial Lanarkshire a place in culture.”
