Capitalising on the success of this year’s ‘From Here’ EP, London’s Winnie Raeder is back with ‘She’, a gorgeous, sensory ballad that washes over you like waves of warm water. Supported by tender tugs of the guitar, Raeder’s voice is soulful and husky, her words largely ambiguous and open to interpretation – “If I could I would / I’d build a rocket ship / to gather all the stars and fill your pocket”. The chorus is quite simply hair-raising as backing singers harmonise with Raeder, enhancing her already frighteningly good vocal. A cacophony of voices is present by the end, giving ‘She’ a choral, almost religious edge. The choir soon departs though, Raeder left alone, asking “If I find a way to the moon / will you come too?” Stunning.
