Hooks that stay in your ear, a breathy voice and echoing guitars that seem to come from another world: That’s how you could describe the music of Rahel. Dream pop meets NDW, 80s beat meets muted synths. Since 2020, Rahel has been holed up in her home studio with producer Raphael Krenn, and the songs that come out of it sound kind of sweet, but they aren’t really, if you listen closely: Sometimes Rahel holds up a mirror to the “don’t-just-be-sexy” morality and slutshaming, sometimes she sings about the disorientation of her generation. Rahel wants one thing above all: to show attitude. And does not renounce the invitation to dance.
