Rising artist Rationale has released the fourth and final track to his debut EP, Fuel To The Fire, which drops tomorrow via Best Laid Plans. According to the London talent — who’s garnered support from numerous tastemakers — his latest effort “The Mire” is a song “about a jilted lover, sinking in a self made swamp of unrelenting regret….” Despite the despairing subject matter, it’s actually an insanely infectious and upbeat tune.
Sink into “The Mire” below.
Rationale is a new producer based out of London who made waves for his unconventional debut, “Fast Lane.” The as-of-yet faceless artist has a heartfelt, genre-hopping sound that caught the attention of Pharrell and Scott Vener, who featured the soulful song on the inaugural episode of OTHERtone–their new Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio program–waxing poetic on the track with guest Justin Timberlake. At two minutes and 35 seconds long the effort feels more like a preview, but luckily the producer has an album in the works. Rationale explains the basis behind the project is to make tunes for “people who seek out sincere music which emotes and provides that special relatable something we all feel when a song really connects.” Get connected with this song below.
