Rainee Blake is an LA-based singer-songwriter, actress, and musician from Australia. Not too long ago, she released a heartfelt neo-soul single, entitled, “Closer.”
Rainee Blake – “Closer” single
“I demand a space away, hold myself in higher grace. Move in closer only when I feel close to myself. Now that I’m older, I’ll cancel the weight. Now that I’m wiser, I forgive my mistakes. I am the spirit who travels far, making my way home in the dark. I am all of me with my toes against the earth. I rest in the ease of knowing my own worth. And I don’t have to prove its nothing new ‘cause I know in my heart what is true.” – lyrics
‘Closer’ tells a passionate tale about a woman who experiences growth after a failed relationship with her significant other. Apparently, during this time of reflection, she learns how to safely recover from pain. Later, she tells her ex-partner, “I had to love you so I could love me too. But I didn’t need your tears and your pride. I didn’t know then what I do know now. Sometimes the lesson comes and brings you down.”
‘Closer’ contains a post-relationship-based narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of KELS, Leah Harris, and DRCY. The mellow, laidback tune possesses groovy bass and guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with warm neo-soul and indie R&B elements. Furthermore, “Closer” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Rainee Blake in the near future as she continues to release new music.
“‘Closer’ is an exploration of healing from a breakup. Offering forgiveness to yourself for your mistakes and finding wholeness through the process.” – Rainee Blake explained
Rainee Blake is best known for her portrayal of Alannah on CMT’s hit TV show, Nashville. Since wrapping on the show, Rainee has recorded her debut EP, “Fool for Love,” in Nashville, Tennessee. Also, she just toured in Australia including sold-out shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Rainee’s new music combines ’70s soul and soft rock with modern R&B. Think Lake Street Dive meets Carole King plus a gutsy, modern lyrical sensibility.
