As the harbinger of a new era in Pop romanticism, London-born, LA based artist Rachel Rabin, better known as RAIGN, bends boundaries to create a darkly-dreamy music that’s near-sublime in its transformative power. RAIGN’s lavishly textured take on alt-pop centers on her “heart stopping vocals” and “soaring cinematic scope.” Fans of Florence & the Machine, Imagine Dragons and Hosier will love the “baroque elegance” in her ornate soundscape.
Achieving over 50 million streams across all platforms and charting multiple times in various territories, RAIGN has grown a loyal fanbase and with two US top 100 EPs in the bag (Knocking On Heavens Door & When It’s All Over) is set to release her long awaited, debut LP entitled SIGN. Collaborating in Los Angeles with her production partners Robbie Lamond (Ellie Goulding/Lana Del Rey), Mysto & Pizzi (Kelly Rowland), Michael Mani (Becki G/Back Street Boys) and French House DJ Fred Falke (Fleurie/Daft Punk/Ellie Goulding), SIGN centers around RAIGN’s signature, battlecry sound complete with lush, live strings, Taiko drums and emotive vocals, which has graced many a soundtrack (The Vampire Diaries, The 100, AMC’s Humans, America’s Got Talent, World Of Dance), but also features her uplifting, Alt-Pop leaning singles, which artfully blend her orchestral elements with organs, electric guitars and driving, organic drums.
Whetting our appetites for this monumental triumph of a release, RAIGN shares Out of Time which takes a sharp synthetic approach to contemporary Rock and dances along the blurred lines of influence that she incorporates into her unique and poised vision of Pop. As the quote outlines below, the lyrics express her desire to striking while the iron is hot and she graces the driving instrumental with her distinctive ethereal vocals that border on cinematic.
On the motivation behind Out of Time, RAIGN states that “It’s about having a feeling inside that you can do something magical, but you have to move fast or the magic moment will go and if you don’t do it now, you’ll always regret it. Personal alchemy. ”
