Rationale released Vessels recently, as a part of his EP of the same name. The song has a chill vibe to it, thanks to the production that he collaborated on with Bastian Langebaek. It features a choral like arraignment nearing the end of the song that lends an interesting aspect to the song. The song is about taking control of your life and making it mean something – whatever that may be for each person. Specifically, Rationale sings about waiting for someone, and that he’ll be there for them no matter what.
“Don’t be another empty vessel / free your mind,”
Rationale was born in Zimbabwe but is now based in London and was formally known as Tinashé (his first name). We’re glad the name changed happened since there can’t be two Tinashes! His first album, as Rationale, will be released March 2017.
