Transitional tunes: Rae Morris – Unguarded
Tilly Attrill shares her perfect seasonal song for Autumn
Rae Morris makes music for every season; ‘Do it’ and ‘Atletico (The Only One)’ from her second album gracing many of my summer playlists, but her debut album Unguarded is full of tracks perfect for autumnal mornings and chilly evenings.
Title track ‘Unguarded’ provides the perfect balance of quiet pop production, beautiful songwriting and effortlessly coordinated harmonies to form an enchanting letter to a future lover; ‘I’ve a future in mind for us – where we will be unguarded together’. Morris’ vocal tone along with her reflective lyrics create a song that’s hopeful and optimistic; just what you need when the weather gets colder and it seems to rain every day for weeks at a time.
Rae invites you into a world that is nostalgic for the future, something we all need as 2020 comes to an end.
Along with the rest of this album, it is an ideal listen whether walking to campus in the surprising cold or wrapped up in three jumpers on the sofa.
