2016 saw RALPHrelease ‘Cold to the Touch’ and ‘Something More’ which have gained over 3 million plays on Spotify together, and with the ever increasing quality and memorability of her music, there is no doubt that this EP is the start of an even more exciting era for the Canadian up-and-comer.
One of the new tracks to emerge from the EP is ‘Crocodile Tears’, a track Ralph explains “is actually one of the most important songs on the EP for me.” Previously, Ralph had been writing top lines over other’s tracks, but after a night of reflecting on a failed relationship, where she “spoke about being cheated on and how foolish I had felt, but how it had also taught me so much about personal strength”, ‘Crocodile Tears’ was written from scratch. “I realized I had been emotionally disconnected to my other tracks because I wasn’t really writing them, I was just top lining. This moment fully changed the project and I ditched all my old songs and amicably parted ways with the guy I had been working with. ‘Crocodile Tears’ has since been re-produced by the wonderful Derek Hoffman and I love it, it reminds me of my growth as Ralph and as a songwriter.”
