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 100 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 co-producers 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.
Who Are You was written in Los Angeles and was produced by fellow Brit Robbie Lamond (Lana Del Rey/Ellie Goulding), a frequent collaborator on the the forthcoming album. A more pop-leaning, uptempo reverie featuring a memorable sing-along hook, signature epic drums and a 12-piece string ensemble recorded live in Hollywood.
On the motivation behind Who Are You, RAIGN states that “Who Are You is a very special song to me. Written after a hike to the top of a mountain in Sedona, it was inspired by the awesome vista and a strong feeling of being loved from afar, but wanting that love to be close, someone real, someone I could see and touch and being willing to travel the Universe to find that person.”
