Folly Rae is ready to capitalise on her success of last year with her brilliant new single, “Full Stop.”
Rae’s 2018 was pretty amazing, performing at SXSW in Texas alongside Stormzy and Jake Bugg to name a few as well as releasing her debut EP, featuring the practically perfect “You Don’t Love Me” – I mean, this song is all kinds of wonderful.
“Full Stop” continues to show a different side to the British artist, it’s like she can turn her talents to anything.
The alt-pop production is carried by a pulsating synth that works underneath electric claps and Rae’s sweet delivery – the harshness of the synth almost works as a juxtaposition to the melody.
The way Rae delivers her lyrics could almost be taken and put over a sugary pop piece, however, when you listen to the lyrics they discuss the breakup of a relationship, and rather than go down the sad and emotional route, she goes for the defiant and strong approach – again, a contrast to the delivery.
“No subtle meaning between the line/This ain’t a wrong that you can right/This ain’t a fight and make up tonight…No subtle meaning between the line/This ain’t a wrong that you can right/This ain’t a fight and make up tonight”
Can we talk about the songwriting for a second?! The song is so well written, every line adds to the story she’s telling and while being a personal story, it’s open enough for anyone to connect to it!
Rae is on the way to becoming one of Britain’s brightest stars!
