#57 Rae Morris – Wait A While

There’s a blissful simplicity to the music of Rae Morris: a voice, a piano and a bucketload of emotion. In musical style it recalls Regina Spektor at her most mellow, while there’s a touch of Dark Dark Dark’s Nona Marie Invie to the vocal. With fans behind her like Noah & the Whale – Charlie Fink produced her debut EP For You last year – and a track featuring on the last ever episode of Skins, it’s clear she’s hovering on the brink of the big time. ‘Wait A While’ is taken from her current From Above EP and it’s not hard to imagine that by the time her debut album is released later this year she could be pretty huge. So listen quick, folks, and tell everyone you were there first.
