Toronto starlet Ralph has been capturing the hearts of pop fans internationally over the past year and now comes the day they’ve all been waiting for. After a string of hit singles, an MMVA nomination, and a major tour announcement, Ralph’s debut full length album ‘A Good Girl‘ is available today via 604 Records/Yunizon.
‘A Good Girl’ introduces a new sound for Ralph – maintaining her classic glittering synths and disco flare, she’s introduced heavier beats and a sprinkle of sultry R&B to create a collection of danceable bops, low-key jams and heartbreak anthems. Including the summer favourites ‘Girl Next Door’ ft. TOBi and ‘Tables Have Turned,’ the 10-track collection holds an eclectic range of emotions from the flirty ‘Bedroom Eyes’ to the intensely emotional ‘Cereal’ ft. Milk & Bones.
“I wrote A Good Girl over the course of a year, maybe a little more… and a lot happened in that year,”explains Ralph. Her new album is a collection of intimate stories, feelings and experiences since her early 2017 debut, “because I use song writing as a type of therapy and a way to explore my feelings, the songs naturally began to reflect everything that was happening in my life. Sometimes I was hurting, other times I was the one hurting someone else, and then to make it more complicated, sometimes I’d be both”.
In addition to the album release, Ralph has released a brand-new video for her latest track ‘Long Distance Lover’. Directed by Ally Pankiw the video features a diverse group of hopeful lovers at a bingo-hall style speed dating event. Sparks fly while opposites attract and Ralph leads the crowd both in their search for love and a surprise dance number.
Previous single ‘Tables Have Turned’ was warmly received by Australian tastemakers, including support from the likes of triple j, SYN FM, Music Feeds, Pilerats, Savage Thrills, Project U, Acid Stag, Future Mag Music and AAA Backstage.
The track also enjoyed resounding success globally, reaching #1 on Hype Machine’s now charts, and featuring on Spotify’s New Music Friday (US, Canada, Germany, Poland, Switzerland) and Apple Music’s ‘Best of the Week’ in over twenty-four countries (including US, UK, Netherlandsand Canada).
Over the coming months, Ralph will set off on a twenty-five date tour across the US, Canada and UK, performing at a combination of her own headline shows and support slots to Ria Mae and Flint Eastwood.
