Single Review – Rae Morris – Lower The Tone

The unpredictable, thriving chimes of Rae Morris’ new offering – Lower the Tone – may be the best single to come from sophomore album Someone Out There. It chops and changes constantly, like a maze of sizzling robotics, with Morris’ smooth yet icy vocals as your guide. Beginning with quiet vocals, the song builds into a lustful cry, punctuated by aggressive bass and enhanced by a ghostly riff. Much like with many of her tunes, the rupture of harmonies really adds to the track, making the increasingly passionate, increasingly irate cry for affection all the more substantial. The more layered, the more labyrinthine take on alt-pop longing makes this some of Rae Morris’ strongest work to date.
