Hailing from Columbia, Missouri, Rae Fitzgerald is an artist that has made waves over the years and has returned from a four-year gap to bring us a new single titled I’ve Got A Vision.
Both calming and surreal, I’ve Got A Vision is an unforgettable experience that has unrivalled beauty and serenity. Beginning with what sounds like a sample of a windscreen wiper moving back and forth, the song creeps into motion with a calm guitar line paired with Fitzgerald’s haunting vocals. Instrumentally, this track is unique, with an ambient quality to it that creates a beautiful base for the words to shine.
I’ve Got A Vision also reminds me a lot of the hymns you usually would hear inside a house of worship. Unsurprisingly, this blends perfectly with the lyrical content, which partially focuses on faith. Passages like “I got the faith to move you along” and “christ alive, I could die tonight in a dress too tight” work to create an atmosphere of reflection and an idea of self-belief or vision of one’s self.
The harmony created on this single is exquisite too, with layers of vocals pouring out and creating a soundscape of sombre tones. Taken from the Lonely Listener EP, due out on August 28th via Keeled Scales, I’ve Got A Vision is a piece of art that I will not forget, with some of the best singing I have heard on a track in a hot minute. Seriously, this song is majestic. Give it a listen now! Cheers.
