I once fell in love without a parachute: The opening line to sweet songbird MOREA’s latest single, Set Me Free. The single delivers visions of cooling down in the shade after a grueling summer’s day, and MOREA effortlessly lulls us to sleep with her song. With a voice like twinkling stars and a tranquil soft guitar, she weaves a tale of someone longing to be relinquished from an unhealthy relationship. We all know well what marching into love unprepared feels like. Jumping headfirst into love when you’re not ready can quickly cause you to crash, and you’re stuck trying to pick up the pieces. That stripped-bare feeling is mimicked by the track’s minimalism. MOREA coos like a dove locked in a cage begging her lover to release her, and let her live freely. She breathes life into her words, making Set Me Free a whisper-like anthem for finding ways to love yourself despite it all.
