WATCH | RALPH Releases Retro-Themed Visuals For "September Fades"
Toronto based artist RALPH is an alluring pop enigma.
The fast rising force returns with her latest visuals accompnying her single "September Fades." As lush as it is drenched in nostalgia, the slick after-hours anthem brilliantly pulls from her retro-leaning ear, anchored on funky guitar flourishes and glitchy synth work, all the while retaining her undeniably contemporary melodic spark.
The clip was filmed in a 1950's Toronto motel that came up during the rise of "moto hotels" depicting the prime rainbow pastel colored retro-modern landscape for RALPH's latest smooth & soulful bop. Directed by Gemma Warren (Vérité, Joseph of Mercury), the visual follows four different rooms and four different stories in the "Evergreen Motel," depicted in the song's lyrics. Each take gives another unique glimpse into the relationships and lives of the characters, offering a fly-on-the-wall narrative to a typically private locale.
Catch RALPH at Piano's in New York City on Saturday March 10 as part of the inaugural New Colossus Day Party, which welcomes international artists to NYC on their way to Austin, TX for SXSW. The event will also feature DJ sets by Bill Pearis (Brooklyn Vegan), Tommy Cassettes (Rough Trade), and Lio Kanine (Kanine Records).
