Song of the Day: Rain – Shiraz

SHIRAZ makes a return to the blog’s hotspot for the second time with single ‘Rain’. The latest offering sees the teenage songstress exchange her neo soulful/pop trademark (featured in previous tracks, ‘Simmer Down’ and ‘Done The Dirty’) for an electronic/dance combo with strong nostalgic 80’s pop tones.

The release of ‘Rain’ is accompanied by a plethora of remixes from reputable producers, including clubland veterans TILT,  who co-wrote and single with the promising newcomer. It’s their driving beat and intense synths that, alongside the 17-year old singer-songwriter from Worcester, who’s vocals make this tune into an almighty earworm.
