UK singer Rainy Milo has this new song called “Rats” that I fell in love with as soon as I heard it! It’s a great tune that has a nice blend of HipHop, R&B and touch of reggae influence in it. In the famous words of the HipHop Legend Q-Tip, That beat is “Hard But Gentile”, this is my new favorite track 4sho!. Rainy’s vocals sounds great and I love that I can hear her accent while she’s singing. I’m also liking how Rainy is riding that cool low-rider in the video 😉 Cool song and video 4sho!
Below is a official press release of Rainy Milo and “Rats”:
Hailing from South East London and still only 17 years old, Rainy Milo is the kind of artist that seems to slow time itself. From putting up her first track ‘Bout You’ at the age of 15, to self- releasing her much loved Limey EP last year, Rainy is an artist who steps to her own bounce, wise and smart beyond her years, as demonstrated so expressively in the lines of her songs.
‘Rats’ is the next single, which is due November 25th and is another slice of classic Rainy Milo. A Brit School Croydon ‘drop out’, she was always outstanding at English. On Rats she effortlessly sketches another teen scene in a collection of lines from the diary, a world of ‘bouncing barriers just to catch the District line, bright green streamers in your eyes’. Then a thundering descending bass line (her Jamaican Granddad was a reggae DJ after all) and you have another perfect jewel of tender lovers rocking, jazz-wise pop R&B. It’s London teen ‘tude, wrapped up in a cloud-hopping number, as fresh as a crisp October morning in Norwood.
Rainy has a natural affinity with the rootsy sounds of south-east London where she was born and raised with her Guyanese mother and British father. Her vocals are distinct, honeyed and soulful, but it’s her stage presence that is most beguiling; she slinks and winds with the aura of someone many years older.
