WHY CARE: Rae (real name Rachel Virtue) is turning heads at an alarming rate with her powerful electronic-inspired pop. Having spent some time writing songs for other artists, it’s now time for her to step in to the spotlight. Her sound gets more addictive with each listen, as hypnotic bass lines and slick beats play off against her bewitching vocal hooks and relatable lyrics. Having played this year’s Great Escape Festival and more recently delivered a praised performance on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury, it’s becoming clear that we will be seeing a lot more of Folly Rae this year.
KILLER TRACK: “U”
