It’s been a good twelve months for local singer songwriter Rachel Croft. Last autumn she released her EP Reap What You Sow to much acclaim. The title track then went on to be used in the BBC/Netflix show Rebel Cheer Squad. Now she’s back with a new one, complete with a slow-mo video. It’s called Hurricane.

Hurricane is classic Americana with a modern edge. A cantering country instrumental arrangement provides the backdrop for Rachel’s storytelling lyrics. Her vocals take on a whole new quality during a passionate and memorable chorus. It’s a must listen for fans of modern country rock, akin to American powerhouse Lissie.
Though Rachel’s recently relocated from York to London, she’ll always have a strong fanbase here, ourselves included. You can check out the mesmerising video for Hurricane below.
