Find yourself running back whenever you try to end it with a significant other, in full knowledge you’re bound to get hurt again? You may be suffering from Troubled Lovers Syndrome. For an illustration of the key symptoms, we turn to unsigned soul songstress Raffinae, making her DJBooth debut with the latest single off her next street release. ThemPeople handle production duties, flipping Mayer Hawthorne‘s cover of James Pants’ Thin Moon into a dreamy backdrop for the singer’s lyrical portrait of romantic ambivalence. Throughout the cut, Raffinae showcases an impressive array of vocal tricks and techniques, from shimmering, overdubbed harmonies to staccato “flows.” This joint is part of a forthcoming, as yet-untitled project, tentatively scheduled for release this summer.
This is the first song featured on DJBooth from this artist. If you would like to hear more, be sure to rate and comment!
