You may not know her name, but you’ll most certainly have heard Rae Morris’ voice. Her dulcet tones are those that soared in Bombay Bicycle Club’s recent single, ‘Luna’, as well as on various other tracks on their current album So Long, See You Tomorrow. Over the past six months Morris has been building up quite the fan base, with an appearance on Clean Bandit’s debut album, a collaboration with Fryars on her upcoming single ‘Cold’ and appearances at Somerset House along with a whole host of festivals.
With support from Radio 1 and iTunes, Rae Morris is set to become one of the breakout stars of 2014, and once you’ve heard her voice, it’s no surprise why. Her ethereal voice, combined with effortlessly haunting song writing is a smash hit combination. Current single ‘Cold’ combines dance beats and echoing instrumental layers, with the vocal lines resonating across the mix. A combination like this could sound messy and juxtaposed, but with Rae Morris and Fryars, it just works.
Having supported the likes of Tom Odell, Lianne La Havas and Noah and The Whale on tour, and a slot supporting George Ezra in October, Morris is embarking on a headline tour this September, and will play the Joiners on Thursday the 11th of September.
