I mean, Rationale has been one of the biggest hits of the year, without a doubt. Something of a surprise arguably, given his unusual sounding voice, and his tendency to refuse to adhere to the rules of one particular genre. Case in point, his new single ‘The Mire‘. Perhaps his most ‘pop’ moment to date, the new single bounces along, with some 80’s disco-esque sounding drums providing the perfect backdrop for Rationale’s thick, warbling tones. It’s another huge step up. (btw, that chorus – “Fire in your heartbeat / a hesitance in your tongue / you tire but you don’t sleep / you’re sinking in the mire ire ire ire ireeee“. Huge.) ‘The Mire‘ is the final track to be lifted from his debut EP ‘Fuel To The Fire‘ – out this Friday (Sep 18th). Give the new one a stream below.
