[AUDIO] RAYE – DISTRACTION

  • The first track to be taken from her upcoming EP ‘Back 2 The Winter’, ‘Distraction’ is by emerging young Croydon star Raye…
     
    Recently signed to Polydor Records, the upcoming hip hop infused EP gives listeners a taste of Raye’s musical influences.
     
    ‘South London, I’m a South London girl’, Raye declares at the opening of this hauntingly soulful RnB track. Written by Raye along with with Fred Gibson, the song dramatically climbs to an infectious climax when it reaches the chorus.
     
    She may only be 18 years old, but as a songwriter and collaborator Raye has already been making huge waves, working with the likes of Labrinth, Stormzy, Emeli Sande, Charli XCX, Illangelo, Wretch 32, Jimmy Napes, Two Inch Punch, MNEK and Alex Da Kid. All this in addition to co-writing Blonde’s recent Top 5 smash, ‘All Cried Out’.

    A South London girl with big international prospects, Raye aspires to “take over the world if I can. I’m young and I’ve been given a crazy opportunity and so I don’t see why not, if I work hard enough. I just want to give everything to my music, so it can stand next to the people I love and the music that inspires me every day.”
     
    Raye uploaded her first EP, ‘Welcome to the Winter’, to Soundcloud last year – a brooding mix of deep electronica and diva attitude, merged with her impressive ear pop hook. One track featured on the EP, the mid-paced ‘Bet U Wish’, gaining 1.5million listens on Soundcloud alone.
     
    With youth, talent, a cavalcade of amazing influences, peer group support and a dextrous songwriting talent on her side, Raye has a strong future. Stream her latest track, ‘Distraction’ above.
