RAYE’s new single, Escapism., featuring rapper and singer 070 Shake, provides a sobering look at how easy it can be to fall into our own reality to the point where we stop listening to those around us. We convince ourselves that we’re doing the right thing, but in fact, all we’re doing is trying to escape the problems we’re having.
We need to be careful though, because eventually, we’ll have to face our problems head-on if we ever want to solve them. Ignoring those who care about us may be a temporary solution, but it’s not a permanent one.
RAYE demonstrates a high level of mastery of her dynamics in Escapism., She varies her volume smoothly and effortlessly, which gives the song depth, texture and nuance. Her vocal timbre is also impressively consistent throughout. 070 Shake’s verse sounds amazing from every perspective.
