Biography

Lanrae’s debut single Dancer (released march 2012) has received airplay nationally.

"wow - a gorgeous voice, and a beautiful song... Love it, can't wait to hear more songs from this lady.." Sarah Howells, Triple j

She was a finalist in both the Pop and Video categories in this years MusizOz awards and has recently jumped on board the roster of Matt O’connors A&R Department.

Hailing from Bondi, Lanrae ran away from Sydney as soon she finished school. With long stints traveling overseas and in other parts of Australia, she has most recently returned from living in remote communities in the Northern Territory where she has been writing and producing tracks with Indigenous young women.

Lanrae’s lyrics aren’t what you’d expect from your typical Indie Pop song. Whilst brazenly screaming at the weakness’s of her humanity Lanrae seems to take the listener on a journey that gently turns a positive eye on every horizon. There’s a depth of maturity that’s refreshingly surprising.

Overall Lanrae’s music is an honest mixture of intelligent and often blatantly frank introspection nicely wrapped up in an Indie Pop parcel.

Lyrics

Dancer

Written By: J Freeman

If daylight finds you lost and lonely
And terror feeds you through the night
Bind yourself in moonlit colours from above
And wrap yourself in love

Move move move like you’re a Dancer
Tell yourself you’re floating free
Move move move like you’re a Dancer
Just be who you need to be
(feel safe with me)

When pressure laces every moment
And fear rides every breath you take
Quash those harmful thoughts that wound you from above
And wrap yourself in love

Move move move like you’re a Dancer
Tell yourself you’re floating free
Move move move like you’re a Dancer
Just be who you need to be
(set yourself free)

Move move move like you’re a Dancer
Tell yourself you’re floating free
Bind yourself in moon lit colours from above
And wrap yourself in love

Move move move like you’re a Dancer
Tell yourself you’re floating free (move move move oh)
Move move move like you’re a Dancer
Just be who you need to be
(who you need to be)

Move move move like you’re a Dancer (move move move oh)
Tell yourself you’re floating free (floating free)
Move move move like you’re a Dancer (move move move oh)
Just be who you need to be
(who you need to be)

Feel safe with me

Run

Written By: J Freeman

I always run… away
I try and run… don’t want to stay
I always run… away
But I can’t get away

Opal is the colour of the inside of my brain
Everything is going crazy I feel quite insaneand when the
Truth comes out that I don’t quite know
What I am about it will be
Scary baby

When the truth comes out
I will rise again
And I’ll face what’s there
Like I breath this air
And I know that I won’t hesitate
Yeah I know that I won’t hesitate

I always run… away
I try and run… don’t want to stay
I always run… away
But I can’t get away

My eyes are seeing green cause
I don’t quite know who I am
And everything I do I criticise beyond demand
I want to live the freedom of a person graced with love
So I can make my mark with weapons loaded positive

When the truth comes out
I will rise again
And I’ll face what’s there
Like I breath this air
And I know that I won’t hesitate
Yeah I know that I won’t hesitate

I always run… away
I try and run… don’t want to stay
I always run… away
But I can’t get away

And still i run… away
I try and run… don’t want to stay
I always run… away
But I can’t get away

I always run… away
I try and run… don’t want to stay
I always run… away
But I can’t get away

Sweetest Remedy

Written By: J Freeman

(Sweetest remedy)
This is the sweetest remedy
This is the sweetest remedy well

Fortune may take your mind and put it in a spin
And you better watch your step or else your going to fall right in
Don’t quite know what to say to bring it all back home
Perhaps just play this game like it is something you don’t own

This is the sweetest remedy
This is the sweetest remedy
Feel your body as it sets you free
This is the sweetest remedy

Relax those trophies baby put them on the shelf
Go change that mental suit
Cause it ain’t no good for your health /
Bathe in the riches being washed up by the sea
And when you’ve had your fill
Come on nourished home to me

This is the sweetest remedy
This is the sweetest remedy
Feel your body as it sets you free
This is the sweetest remedy

And don’t take yourself
Too seriously
I’ve played that game
And darling trouble
Is all that came to me (came to me)

This is the sweetest remedy
This is the sweetest remedy (move you body baby)
Feel your body as it sets you free (do you feel your body)
This is the sweetest remedy

This is the sweetest remedy (this is the sweetest remedy)
This is the sweetest remedy (move you body baby)
Feel your body as it sets you free (this is the sweetest remedy)
This is the sweetest remedy
