Released a few weeks ago, “The Letter” is the brand new single from North London band Aurora Dee Raynes and the latest offering from their upcoming debut album Invisible Things that arrives in two weeks, on November 26.
The new single from Raynes comes on the back of recent support from BBC 6 Music, Bandcamp Weekly, Clash Magazine, THUMP, Stereofox, NTS Radio and Spotify, among others, as well as tastemaker such as Gilles Peterson, Huey Morgan and Tom Ravenscroft.
“The Letter” also serves as the opening track of Raynes’ upcoming Invisible Things album. The track speaks to the importance of honesty in emotional and complex relationships, according to the British artist, and listening to the song makes you feel like you are in the middle of a fraught and personal conversation between a couple.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the track, Aurora Dee Raynes lead singer Danielle Kranendonk says, “The power in the song and the strength in the vocals are me becoming/being that powerful woman. Telling you how it is. If you don’t have transparency in any relationship – open or closed – you’re not being true to yourself or them”.
“The Letter” is also set to be released on vinyl as a limited 500-run double A-side 7″ with their other single “Crazy That Your Love”, to coincide with the release of their album Invisible Things, which they describe as a result of over seven years of writing and recording.
