Rainsford’s ‘Passionate’ Might Actually Be An Aphrodisiac
““In the lyrics I’m describing a few intimate moments…simple things that meant so much to me because that’s all there could be.”
Seductive, curious, charmed: we’ve all felt the fever of passion before and LA songbird Rainsford has put it in a song. With alluring vocals matching the delicacy of Solange, her newest single “Passionate” invites us to visualize the heat of the moment between two people. The loving twist? They can’t be together.
“Falling to my knees for you on your red carpet; feeling passionate”
In expected fashion, Rainsford’s vocals start off the song with a graceful sensuality; rhythmic lyrics and deep vibrato color this electro-pop tune. By the chorus, we’re wrapped up in the ethereal, head-spinning, rush that comes with love. ‘Passionate,’ unabridged and provacative, subtly calls upon a colorful 80s vibe while maintaining Rainsford’s modern flair.
“Passionate is a song about feeling so much for someone but being unable to act on what you both want so badly,” says Rainsford. At some point in our romantic journeys, everyone feels the ferocity of passion: chemicals bouncing all over the place, obsessive feelings luring us into fantasy land. Love is all consuming and when its denied, the intensity doubles and nostalgia jumps in. “In the lyrics I’m describing a few intimate moments…simple things that meant so much to me because that’s all there could be.”
“I’m eating your tears, swallow my pride”
Singer/songwriter Rainsford has topped a variety of Ones to Watch lists, charted at #1 on Hype Machine, and featured in everything from L’Officiel, Flaunt, to Billboard and Paper. Her Spotify listens total almost 4 million, has toured off of her success, and is, without a doubt, a star on the rise.
