Clash caught up with pop talent RAYE recently, and found an artist who revelled in her own independence.
At one point in our conversation, she said simply: “I wanted to do my thing, but be flexible with it. Comfortable, but bold, and fun.”
As far as master-plans go, it's one of the best we've heard. RAYE performed at The Great Escape earlier in the year, appearing live on the Vevo dscvr stage.
Thankfully a film crew were on hand to capture one of the weekend's real highlights - a performance of remarkable grace and tangible potential.
Clash has obtained an exclusive clip from RAYE's set, featuring a soaring version of recent single 'The Line'.
