Multidisciplinary artist Raissa debuts a new track, ‘Shades On’, today. The song is from Raissa’s forthcoming debut EP ‘Herogirl’, out later this year via Mark Ronson’s Zelig Records / Columbia Records / Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
“This song was a freestyle, a tongue in cheek moment about feeling like a boss and letting everyone know,”Raissa says.
The new track follows the first two offerings from ‘Herogirl’, — Go Fast Baby, which was later remixed by acclaimed U.K. producer Mura Masa and Full Tac, and Crowded.
The narrative arc of the ‘Herogirl’ EP chronicles a hero’s journey, a classic story-telling device wherein the protagonist crosses the threshold into another realm to learn a critical lesson that can then be applied to the normal world. Heavily influenced by Raissa’s fascination with sci-fi and fantasy aesthetics, the ‘Herogirl’ EP positions Raissa as the hero of the story, but the EP’s embrace of child-like naivety, a complete lack of cynicism and finding strength in what you love—rather than focusing on what makes you miserable—extends far beyond the music to her audience.
Go Fast Baby and Crowded follow a string of singles from early 2020 that arrived alongside self-made videos, Bullying Boys, Angel Energy and Valentine.
