Raffaella is a singer-songwriter from the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York. Not too long ago, she released a lovely alternative lullaby, entitled, “Hell Yeah”, released via Mom+Pop. 

Raffaella – “Hell Yeah” single

“Upper east side, All the kids think they’re high. Wearing Cartier, un deux trois, we’re the petit bourgeois. More Rosé, Namasté. Salinger, so smart, Black coffee after dark. Let’s light this j.” – lyrics

‘Hell Yeah’ tells an interesting tale of a well-off young woman who confuses true spirituality with her parents’ ballooned bank accounts.

Apparently, she thinks that people are vegans in fur coats, and believes she might have found Jesus in his red soled Louboutin’s.

Even though she has designer drugs flowing in her bloodstream, she loves going to therapy which her mother pays for.

‘Hell Yeah’ tells a relatable storyline, dreamy vocals, and stripped instrumentation flavored with sentimental elements.

“‘Hell Yeah’ is about growing up in NYC amongst like-minded hypocrites. I’m singing a daydream in honor of the kids who had a thing for confusing spirituality with currency, hoping to expose the contradiction in a rosy spotlight.” – Raffaella

Raffaella’s musical influences include Billie Holiday, St. Vincent, and Regina Spektor.

She has opened up for Years & Years, Freya Ridings, and later this year she’ll be on tour supporting Sigrid in the States.
