Trailblazing as one of the few female producers in the industry, the Shoreditch-based multi-faceted artist Raphaella returns with her first solo release of the year, ‘Closure.’
‘Closure’ is an intoxicating and alluring alt-pop banger featuring Nambyar, and is the first taste of Raphaella’s forthcoming new EP.

Speaking on ‘Closure’, Raphaella expanded:
“‘Closure’ is about the really real situation where you just need that last goodbye in a relationship. It hardly ever works, and almost always makes it worse, but you do it anyway. I wrote ‘Closure’ on a writing trip to Amsterdam. I’d produced the track a while back in my Shoreditch studio and felt there was something special about it that I loved, but never quite managed to write something on it that I loved as much as where I’d taken the production to. So, it sat on my hard drive for about six months until my last day in Amsterdam on a writing trip. I wanted to create a really different soundscape, so instead of using traditional percussion I chopped up piano samples and pitched them to create hits, and recorded both myself and Nambyar at different speeds and pitches to create harmonies and layered vocal textures so you can’t fully tell at which point it’s either a female or a male voice.”
