Roxy Rawson showcase beautiful music video alongside atmospheric new single ‘Running Up That Hill’

Roxy Rawson's latest single is chillingly beautiful. Ethereal synths merge with softly-penned vocals to craft an immersive sonic experience. Alongside the track is a visually stunning video that conjures up emotions of hope and empowerment. The video is set in a tranquil setting in an attempt to immerse the listener visually also.

Growing up in a Mormon community in Hitchin, Rawson has always strived to stay creative, paying homage to many different culture and identities. This goal taking her to study at Conservatory Paris VI, then to teaching at inner city schools and to traveling to Rwanda, DRC and Sudan.

Speaking about the single, Rawson shares: “Growing up with Mormonism gave me a troubled perception of God in an environment of pressurized purity. I chose to cover this song because it was a cathartic way to have a dialogue with God. I think it's ok to be angry at God if they exist. When I create music I'm trying to use the experience to heal open wounds, and celebrate feelings so their energy can be transmuted. I recorded this with Alex Franklinos at his Shrunkenheads Recording Studio in London in 2019. During that time I was experiencing a lot of change, after recovery from an illness that had left me bed bound for 8 years and the gradual dissolution of my marriage. The time with Al was an escape into creation, away from the stress of so much transition. We started out just with the violin, but ended up exploring electronic sounds, synthesizers and effects to create a wide soundscape.”

After falling severely ill in 2012 with Lyme Disease and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, her music career took an extended hiatus. Her recovery in 2018 enabled her to work on music again as she released her long awaited debut album ‘Quenching the Kill’ to rave reviews. Fastforwading to 2023, we will see the release of her anticipated follow up album, with lush arrangements that draw on her diverse musical heritage and provide a rich backing to her unyielding Pre-Raphaelite vocals.
