Raye – Flowers

By now you should know that we’ve a serious crush on Rachel Keen, a.k.a. Raye. Following her work since the very beginning, we can’t actually say that we’re impressed with her growth as artist. But her new offering, Flowers, which is also the first one since the release of her debut EP Welcome To The Winter last year, goes beyond the most optimistic expectations.

Flowers adds a bit of roughness in her flow. She said to The Fader: “We are taught by media and movies to be reliant and dependent on love. These depictions of love are found in objects like love hearts and flowers. This song rebels against that—I’m not one for soppy love and I am not one for flowers“. You’re warned now: love Raye, but don’t send flowers to her!

Welcome To The Winter is still available for free download through Raye’s official website. Listen to Flowers below.
