Folly Rae returns to the musical foray with brand new single Full Stop. The track follows on from her empowering 2018 EP Karma Club, released on Black Butter. Full Stop showcases Folly’s skills in catchy lyricism and unique vocals.
I love the synths in this release. The snappiness of the track, the catchiness of the drums, the fun conversational style of the vocals. Folly Rae is always on top of her game. We’ve talked to Folly Rae before on Unheard Gems and her bubbly character sings true both in her music and in her interviews. If you want a fun consistent artist to bring you vibey, dance around your room music, this is her.
Folly Rae released her debut EP Money & Power in 2017 which featured production from the likes of Nana Rogues (the genius behind Tinie Tempah’s Girls Like and Drake’s Passionfruit). Folly has since been supported by the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC Music Introducing and 1Xtra, headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury festival and won over Huw Stephens and DJ Target. Last year saw the young artist drop a colourful Wes Anderson-inspired video for her single Sniper, which racked up over 100k views in two months, and latest single You Don’t Love Me which was championed by Adele Roberts on BBC Radio 1.
Folly Rae is of Norwegian descent and fell in love with music from an early age; she was surrounded by Motown or jazz records courtesy of her family’s record player and trained as a dancer from the age of five. Folly would often pen songs and perform them to her peers, but getting the confidence took a long time as many would say her voice was too unusual. Folly decided to follow her path as a singer and songwriter regardless, citing unique artists Joni Mitchell & Sia as inspiration along the way.
