Texas-born singer Raphaelle has been paying her dues in the New York music scene for the last few years, and she’s starting to make some serious headway.
“No More Pillow Talk” is a story of broken romance, with Raphaelle’s outsized vocals leading the way. The song and video are full of references to classic blues standards and film noir, with arguments in bed framed by long, sharp shadows.
The singer lists Etta James, Amy Winehouse, and Nina Simone as inspirations, and it shows. “I aspire to only create music that makes people feel something, good or bad,” Raphaelle says. “The one common thing everyone can relate to is real raw emotion and I want to share that.”
