Currently Listening To: RALPH
Take a listen to Toronto-based artist RALPH with her latest cut “Something More”, furthering her position as a creator of perfectly crafted feel-good, 70’s-meets-80’s tinged disco. “‘Something More’ was inspired by Aziz Ansari’s Netflix show ‘Master of None’,” explains RALPH, continuing “The show honestly narrates the existential issues faced by young adults now. Consumed with social media and dating apps, we’re obsessed with the idea of something more or someone better, often leading us to sabotage the good things we have.”
RALPH (aka Raffa Weyman) spent much of her childhood covered in facial glitter and feather boas, singing along to Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie, Prince, and the Temptations, and developing an early appreciation for the sounds and styles of the past. Striving to create a unique sound that blends disco, pop, synth, and smooth soul (think Sade meets Donna Summer meets Stevie Nicks), RALPH blends funky 1970’s bass with 1980’s style pop keys, while staying contemporary through vocal melodies and fresh synth sounds. Most importantly, RALPH’s catchy dance tunes stay true to her narrative songwriting style, containing strong lyrical content that tell stories of jealousy, lust, deception, and strength.
