Do you even know? A beautifully haunting song about the frustrations of having so many ideas, thought and dreams that you want to get out there, yet being surrounded by people that don’t understand what it is you are trying to do or say, is the latest great song from Blackpool singer/songwriter Rae Morris.
Released on May 6, 2014 this extremely well craft piece places Rae’s wonderfully enchanting vocals across a soft trip-hop-esque canvas, creating a sound that draws you in and wraps you in a warm blanket, preparing you for the story about to be told. Her lyrics, as always, carry a deep meaning that resonate deep inside, connecting with the listener.
I find it amazing that one so young can have the ability to understand such complex emotions and convey them so eloquently. It is no surprise to me that everywhere she visits to play solo shows sells out. Nor am I surprised that the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club and Clean Bandit hold her in such high regard.
Later this summer Rae’s debut album will be released, something that I am looking forward to, in the mean time, we have her EP’s. And judging by how this latest offering has been received, straight in at number one on the iTune singer/songwriter chart, this Fylde lady is going to be riding high for sometime to come.
I said many years ago that Rae Morris fills a Kate Bushed shaped hole in the music industry, I now think I was wrong. Rae is not the second Kate Bush; she is the first Rae Morris.
Check out Steve Guest’s review of Rae’s live show at Little Thornton Theatre, and click on the link to hear this wonderful song. Then get on iTunes or any major download site and do yourself a favour, go and get all of her works released so far. Trust me, you will not regret it.
