Rae Morris - 'Someone Out There'

8/10

Since releasing her critically-praised debut album 'Unguarded' back in 2015, Rae Morris quickly became one of the most talked about names in British music. Her mix of soaring vocals and eclectic production made her an instantly identifiable figure, and as she returns to unveil her much-anticipated follow-up 'Someone Out There', it is clear that she is far more confident in her sound than before as we see her embark on an even more ambitious direction.

While sonically the style of both albums remain largely the same, the overall tone of 'Someone Out There' is far more uplifting and engaging this time around. The juxtaposition between her more clinical pop tunes and those with a more diverse approach to production helps give this record an extremely fresh sound. She seems more at ease in taking chances and that has resulted in an unabashed release that pulses with positive vibes and a larger-than-life outlook.

While there are still many moments that some will believe is her trying to replicate the success of her first album, the majority of this release delivers such energy, it can be hard to imagine it is the same woman behind it. A glorious return that cements her as one of Britain's most intriguing artists.
