New Music: Rachel Shaps

An emotive approach to synth-pop, with a beautifully melodic flow. The sound feels powerful and highly charged, all the while displaying an essence of fragility and vulnerability.

“I have always had a tendency to gravitate towards people and opportunities that I know will probably only hurt me in the end but they feel so exciting in the moment that it’s hard to rein myself in before it’s too late. I actually had a psychic reading where the psychic told me I had a ‘power animal ally’ in my life at this time, and I had no idea what that meant, but she said it was a moth. After doing a little research on the significance of a moth, this idea of a ‘moth drawn to a flame’ totally resonated and stuck with me, and I instantly wrote this song.”
