We popped London soloist Rae Morris on our reserve list for our tips for 2014 and her recent form is stating her case for a move up from the subs bench. Following her guest appearance on Bombay Bicycle Club's recent single 'Luna', she's now unveiled her new single, the hypnotic 'Do You Even Know?' - find both tracks below.
It appears that Morris has gone from the "raw prospect" we stumbled across in 2012 into a significantly more confident and ambitious artist. Admittedly, that's hardly a revelation considering she was only 18 back then. Her latest career step has involved collaborating with formidable producer Ariel Rechtshaid, who won a Grammy for his work on the most recent Vampire Weekend album, as well as co-writing the incredible Usher track 'Climax'.
'Do You Even Know?' bubbles along in an engaging fashion, combining elegant strings with a lolling beat to contrast the typically striking vocals from Morris. We're not quite sure why the video seems to largely capture Morris playing schoolyard game Stuck In The Mud but the track's a good un anyway. 'Do You Even Know?' is out on 6 May.
