Orla Rae – ‘Rising Game’ (Premiere)

We’re extremely excited to give you first ears to ‘Rising Game’, the debut single from 17 year old singer songwriter Orla Rae.


Heavily swung drums, a mazy bass line and chords that burst with colour around every corner combine with Orla’s stunning vocals for a debut that boasts complexity and creativity well beyond her years.


It’s a vibrant cocktail of sounds, fusing RnB, Neo Soul, Hip Hop and contemporary Jazz to create a forward thinking affair that tips its hat to the days of Soul and Motown that filled her childhood.


Co-written and produced by Yakul’s James Berkeley, Orla Rae joins the likes of Chloe Bodur, Natty Reeves, Ebi Soda and Francesca Fulmini as yet another exciting young artist to emerge from the thriving Soul and Jazz scene in Brighton.


‘Rising Game’ will be available on all platforms from August 21st, pre-save it on Spotify here. And if you like what you hear you can catch her performing the day after the release at Soul Stripped Sessions at Komedia in Brighton.
