When we are researching articles we naturally find a lot of artists that we may not have discovered otherwise had it not been for their connection with latex clothing and fashion. This is not an indictment on those artists, merely a reflection of ourselves being out of touch with the modern popular music scene!
A lot of this music we could take or leave, and our interest in the artist extends only as far as our solemn duty to document latex developments in the mainstream.
However just occasionally, we’re introduced to an artist or song which excites us, inspires us, makes us feel good, and we can’t help listening on repeat and spreading the word to those in our circle. We thank latex for such discoveries!
And so it was late last year as we watched Rae Morris when performing her new single Do It for the BBC’s Live Lounge. Rae wears a red latex body which looks fabulous on her under the dim red lights of the close-up, intimate studio environment. Rae’s joy in the performance is as infectious as the song, her vocals sharp and distinct, and the melody and electronic production right up our street. We’re happy to say that with Rae we came for the latex, and stayed for the music.
The official music video is also an upbeat and joyous watch.
In the live lounge, Rae is wearing a red version of the latex body by Kim West which she also wears on the cover for her album Someone Out There. The album is released on the 2nd of February and can be preorded here: https://lnk.to/someoneoutthere?ref=http%3A//raemorris.co.uk/
