On Raffaella’s debut project LIVE, RAFF, LOVE (co-written and produced by Jake Luppen of Hippo Campus), the New York City-bred singer/songwriter confronts and contorts the liminal space between adolescence and adulthood, creating a world with as much novelty as there is nostalgia.
The Minneapolis-based artist narrates with a specificity so intense you immediately absorb each sensory detail (the cotton candy and cigarette smoke, drunken kisses and stoned malaise). In following the shape of a play, LIVE, RAFF, LOVE’s Act II takes on a heavier tone. The result is a body of work establishing Raffaella as one of pop’s sharpest observers of human behavior, transforming her self-reflection into revelatory insight on the sublime chaos in coming-of-age.
Having previously opened for Misterwives, Bishop Briggs, Samia, Liz Phair and more – Raffaella brings her story to the forefront on her first-ever headline tour.
LIVE, RAFF, LOVE (Act II) is out now.
