Ladies and Gentleman, Louis Baker is back!
The New Zealand singer/songwriter has returned to the scene with a deep and honest new single.
‘Rainbow’ feels somewhat like a confession.
And the one-shot visuals accompany this intimate moment between him and you, the viewer. It reminded me of when I saw him perform live in Sydney; at times, it felt like you’re the only one in the room and he’s singing right to you – and only you.
In ‘Rainbow’, Baker is letting his walls down and inviting you in to listen carefully to the lyrics, and when he walks away at the end, he leaves you to reflect with all that has been said (or in this case, sung).
I don’t know what I would do
If I couldn’t be close to you again
My skin feels like it’s thickening
This cold-hearted world is sinking in
We’ve seen enough to know how deep we’re in
But with you I feel
But with you I feel free
‘Rainbow’ is emotional, raw, vulnerable and provides a strong sense of connection.
The single was written in New Zealand and recorded at Red Bull Studios in London with The Nextmen’s Brad Ellis, who brings his background in hip hop production to the song’s soulful vibe.
