London artist Rationale takes us through the land of confession and redemption in his new single “One By One” where he braids the R&B skeleton of his sound with Afro and Caribbean influences. The result is an eccentric and arrhythmic blend of groove and bounciness that locks your ears down immediately. Produced by Bastien Langebaek (Jack Garratt, Jessie Ware), “One By One” is a sassy balladry that is hard to resist:
“One by One came together on a day when I was feeling like experimenting with sounds and styles I hadn’t tried before. I’d been listening to a lot of Afro/Caribbean influenced music at the time and threw caution to the wind and went with it. Drawing on a story a friend had told me about a situation he was in, the lyrics came easy. I think people will be surprised but hopefully pleasantly so as it’s one of my favourite tracks in the EP!” shared Rationale.
Rationale is currently working on a new EP and his podcast series The Irrationale Reviews, which covers a myriad of subjects including women’s rights, depression, fitness, and etc.
