Cuffing season is finally upon us! Bring on the cozy clothing and cold nights. East London crooner Rachel Foxx recently collaborated with Dutch beat-maker Jarreau Vandal for new single “Be Mine”.

Foxx layers vigorous vocals over Vandal’s succulent beats. The Amsterdam tastemaker’s sounds are an eclectic bop. Foxx goes on to convey the endless, painful, thoughts surrounding infatuation.

The more you listen to “Be Mine”, it feels like you’re part of an intimate performance at a tiny café in the city. It brings us to a nostalgic space of trying to keep it cool with a distant lover. Her lyrics showcase the internal battle between heart, mind and being a passionate lover who is walking the tightrope of loving hard and being felt.

That’s why I say ‘you’re always away from me’ I’m talking about loving someone from a distance because we don’t get to be close like how I want to be. And its frustrating…. always. I talk about having a connection thats more than physical but when you never get to see each other you can feel helpless and unfulfilled.”
