Rainy Milo – “This Thing of Ours”
Wow, this is wonderful. Rainy Milo, London-based R&B singer, has been making music since she was 14 years old, working on collaborations with other local artists. After releasing her first track, “Bout You,” Milo actually decided to turn down multiple recording contracts so she could freely express herself without being influenced by anyone else. It was definitely a bold move.
Yesterday, Milo released her debut mixtape/EP Limey. Her R&B sound comes from a variety of different influences, including reggae, jazz and hip hop. It’s tough to pick out a standout track from this mixtape, because they are all so great. “This Thing of Ours” is produced by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti collaborator Cole M.G.N., and probably does the best job showcasing all of her strengths as an artist.
