Hailing from South East London, Rainy Milo put up her first track “Bout You” at the age of 15, which was snapped up almost immediately by Gilles Peterson for his Brownswood Bubblers 8 compilation. She’s also self-released her much loved Limey EP.
“Rats” is a slice of quintessential Rainy Milo. She effortlessly sketches another teen scene in a collection of lines from the diary – then comes a thundering descending bass line courtesy of her production team Caswell and Daje. It’s London teen ‘tude, wrapped up in a cloud-hopping number, backed magnificently by her characteristically deep production. “Deal Me Briefly,” with music produced by Chet Faker, sets the mood for Rainy to showcase her elegant vocals – airy and unique – with hints of jazz, hip-hop, and R&B throughout.
