While Prayrain and Tom Lohrmann‘s collaboration “One-Sided” originally came out back in June 2019, it only recently came across our desk at Glasse Factory. A standard pop song about unrequited love, it features bright, syncopated guitars, sleek pop production, and notable vocal performances from both Prayrain and Lohrmann.
While I felt that Lohrmann’s voice matched the funky, upbeat track a little bit more naturally, Prayrain certainly established herself as a vocal force with a strong performance. While the auto-tuned “ah’s” that are introduced at the beginning of the song and reappear throughout the track didn’t hit my ears particularly well, she displayed impressive power and range throughout. Meanwhile, Lohrmann’s clear, radio-friendly voice fit this song like a glove, and his exceptional bass work did not go unnoticed.
“The phrase ‘pray rain’ was originally coined for the spiritual practice of journaling about having what you wish for in the present moment. It is believed that if you write about your fantasies as reality, you will attract them. I’ve wanted to create music for a long time, but have been afraid. I don’t want to hold back the inspiration any longer, so I’ve chosen the name ‘Prayrain’ to create music as if my fears don’t exist.”
