New York City-born and raised artist and student of feminist philosophy, Raffaella, has released her second single, “Bruce Willis,” on the heels of her recent signing to Mom+Pop Music. The new single, produced by Larzz Principato, takes inspiration from Mason Currey’s “Daily Rituals: How Artists Work,” Beverly Hills, François Rabelais’ “Gargantua,” Bruce Willis and “Milk and Honey” by John Lennon.
Raffaella’s music is complex, both beautiful and culturally relevant. It explores hypocrisy within the feminist movement and the ways women can empower (or disempower) each other. Raffaella recently debuted her first official music video for hit single “Sororicide” via Paper Magazine, with the video edited by Jarrett Fijal (David Bowie, Beyonce).
Raffaella is a recent graduate from Barnard College at Columbia University, where she studied French Literature and Philosophy and “prefers Salinger to sororities (Cools).” Over the past year, she has been busy collaborating with the band Bråves and will be releasing new music over the coming months. Raffaella has worked with Marius de Vries on the title song for Francesco Carrozzini’s documentary, Chaos and Creation, and has most recently opened up for the artist Years & Years, playing to a sold out crowd at Brooklyn Steel.
