HEAR TWO TRACKS FROM ERIN RAE’S CATHARTIC NEW ALBUM

HEAR TWO TRACKS FROM ERIN RAE’S CATHARTIC NEW ALBUM

There’s a timeless beauty and an intensely warm and inviting disposition that’s present musically on the two tracks Nashville singer/songwriter & musician Erin Rae has released recently in the wake of announcing her new album Putting On Airs. The first, ‘Can’t Cut Loose’ released back in late March instantly disarms with its folk inspired rhythmic lilt and open and genial feel while the title track instantly invokes a vibe of gorgeous nostalgia generated by its rich cues to country, lush instrumentation and Rae’s gently insistent and earnest vocal delivery.

But the music belies the fact that lyrically both tracks, in keeping with the rest of the record, deal with personal fears and patterns of behaviour that Rae has worked on overcoming from her childhood for many years. Can’t Cut Loose’ deals with the pitfalls of her addictions while ‘Putting On Airs’ relates to the face she has put on many times to avoid being direct and honest with others. On the remainder of the album she reflects on her long struggle to understand her own sexuality after growing up in a stifling and intensely conservative southern United States context. She also tackles processing the racism and prejudice she grew up around and the regular discrimination and injustice she witnessed happen to others.

Listen to ‘Can’t Cut Loose’ and ‘Putting On Airs’ below which are actually the third and fourth singles to surface from the 12 track record which features the 2017 singles ‘Like The Last Time’ and ‘Wild Blue Wind’. The outstanding Putting On Airs  is out June 8 through Single Lock Records. Pre-order the album here.
