Singer, songwriter and producer Raphael has released his debut single entitled ‘Faith’. The track features bombastic production, starting off with punchy and exuberant chords that outline the repeated hook of “Faith has a name”. The instrumental is championed by space-aged synthesisers that switch between hard hitting stabs and lush pads.
The drums are energetic with variations in the hi-hats keeping the percussion moving. On top of all this is Raphael’s passionate and soulful vocal performance which lyrically outlines themes of love across the track.
Speaking on the new release, he says, “Love is like an Astronaut and behind the mask there can be anyone, and the same is true for faith, if it had a name it would be love, and anyone would be able to feel it. The music expresses this universality in the song and in the music video.”
Alongside the track is an accompanying music video, following the journey of an astronaut to take a leap of faith into space. The concept shows how love is a leap of faith and makes you question whether or not you would choose to float into space, alone, given the opportunity.
This is an exciting start for Raphael, we can only watch and wait to see what comes next for this artist.
