Following up on the success of Lady Wray’s solo debut album Queen Alone, we are proud to give you another 45 offering, this time showing another side of Nicole. Known worldwide for her early career as a Hip Hop / R&B singer, then more recently for her more matured Soul inspired writing, the A side of this one “Underneath My Feet” shows just how hard it is to put Lady Wray in a box. If you haven’t seen her live show, you may have no idea that she has a healthy bad ass Rock and Roll side to her, commanding crowds with a raucousness that likens Betty Davis. Underneath My Feet is a tough blend of glam rock drums and guitar stabs that Nicole takes to like a fish to water. A self proclaimed voodoo woman, putting a spell on the listener, warning all of her unbridled power.
The B side is the heart wrenching Guilty, a song Wray wrote to cope with the incarceration of her brother. One listen and it is impossible to doubt the sincerity, again showing Cole’s songwriting prowess with imagery of no one to cheers with, and not wanting to experience the comforts of home knowing her brother was locked up in a cell. A solid 2 sider showing a different side of Lady Wray than she is typically known for all wrapped up in a beautiful picture sleeve cover. Another Big Crown sureshot.
