Hailing from New York City is rising singer and songwriter Rachel Bochner, who has been steadily building momentum over the last few years thanks to her unique approach to music-making.

Created alongside frequent collaborator Tiger Darrow, punchy new single ‘If I’m Gunna Be Sad (I Might As Well Look Hot Doing It)’ serves listeners with a fierce, bold and confident mix of dark electronica and alternative pop. Elaborating on the song, Bochner explains:

“When I showed up at Tiger’s studio the day we wrote this single, all I knew is that I wanted to make a song we could strut to. We started off writing something that embodied more of an IDGAF attitude, but after a while we realised it just didn’t feel super authentic. There was a moment when we were working on it when we realised, okay, maybe we do kind of give a f*ck… but if we’re going to be sad, we might as well look hot doing it.”

To date, Bochner has amassed more than five million catalogue streams on Spotify, and garnered praise from the likes of Clout Magazine and Kings of A&R. An upcoming debut EP will be released later in the year.
