Watch – Rae Morris ‘Do You Even Know?’ Song of The Day

If you take Haim, mix them with Birdy and swirl in some Annie Lenox, you would get close to the ethreal-bluesy-pop sound of UK singer/songwriter, Rae Morris. If you don’t know her yet, it’s time to get ready – she’s been busy this past year, collaborating with Bicycle Bombay Club and newcomers Clean Bandit, turning out a new EP and working on her debut album here in the states (LA). There are several tracks you could use to get a taste of this captivating artist, including her most recent release, “Cold” which features another UK songster, Fryars. But it was the mystical flowing pop song “Do You Even Know?”, that got us – “hook, line and sinker”.

The official video, which shows the Blackpool singer in a red dress in many different mannequin like positions, is explained on her YouTube channel this way:

“I wanted people to be able to feel the discomfort and awkwardness of feeling misunderstood. I wanted people to see me as a mannequin shining on the outside but with the inside well hidden. The end of the video is my favourite part. 

My figure, the static character, begins turning and spiralling out of control through a form of stop frame animation. At the end, the spiralling stops and I’m no longer in the chains of the statuesque stillness from before, but moving more freely and dancing. 

To me, that symbolises an acceptance and shy confidence knowing that it doesn’t really matter if people know you or not…” 

Rae Morris Do You Even Know

Expect to hear alot more about Rae as the year moves on and we’ll keep our eyes out for that debut LP. Enjoy our Song of The Day, “Do You Even Know?” by Rae Morris.

Lyrics
Blow away, in time, it’s hard to see yourself in the corner.
I gather reasons why, try to justify what i taught her.
Did you love, did you love someone?
To the bitter end, when the love couldn’t come,
And you want to leave, where you came from,
And cast your heart and mind to the ocean.

Do you even know that, i keep everything in?
Do you even know that, i keep everything in?
Do you even know that, i keep everything in?
Do you even know me at all?

It’s brave to seek sometimes, but i’m not brave enough to get over,
The many miles i’ve run, have only put more weight on my shoulders.

When i loved, when i loved someone,
To the bitter end, When the love couldn’t come,
I just want to leave, where we came from,
And cast my heart and mind to the ocean.

Do you even know that, i keep everything in?
Do you even know that, i keep everything in?
Do you even know that, i keep everything in?
Do you even know me at all?

Head-tied, over what we’re doing,
My mind, wasn’t built for this.

Do you even know that, i keep everything in?
Do you even know that, i keep everything in?
Do you even know that, i keep everything in?
Do you even know me at all?
