Song of the Day: Raphaella – Alien

Raphaella Alien

Raphaella releases brand new single ‘Alien’
It must be quite exciting to be Raphaella right now. After collaborations with Gorgon City, Cardboard Foxes, Midnight City and Michael Caflan and performing ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ with The Disciples at Wireless Festival, the singer, songwriter and producer finally released another solo track. The brand new single is called ‘Alien’ and shows a slight shift in Raphaella’s sound. She is ready to fill up the dancefloors with this tune!

A Bit of Pop Music named her as one of the most promising artists for 2016, based on the glorious singles ‘In The Rain’ and ‘Fall’, which both perfectly captured her Persian and Scottish roots in music. ‘Alien’ is her first solo attempt of the year and she certainly does not disappoint. This time around she delivers a straight up club banger with an infectious drop as a chorus. Her vocals in the verses are full of life and the way she sings ‘you call me an alien, I like the name’ won’t leave my brain all night. Although the Persian influences are not as obvious as in the other two singles, you can still definitely hear them in the drop. Raphaella continues to perfect her mixing of the best of two worlds in a contemporary sounding electronic pop style.

Update: The video is out now and Raphaella busts some moves throughout!
