Raelle's 'Cruel Nostalgia' is emotive but comforting for those who've lost

Music should make you feel something, and Raelle's music does that.

Her latest track, Cruel Nostalgia tells the story of the untimely suicide of a close friend. Something that Raelle addresses and navigates throughout the 3 minutes and thirty-two seconds of this track.

The track features a beautiful, live orchestral arrangement, using brass and a heavy bass line, with gorgeously textured rhythms and Spanish-style guitar. But most striking is the writer of this song's voice.

Raelle uses her voice to significant effect, with complex vocal harmonies, showing off her impressive range and delivering thoughtfully penned lyrics in a way that only someone who wrote them could.
