R.Y.F. Announces New Album “Everything Burns” Out September 10!
New Single “Cassandra” Out Now!
R.Y.F. is the project of Italian artist Francesca Morello.
With the announcement, R.Y.F. shares the new single and music video “Cassandra,” which was directed by acclaimed theater company Motus, and stars actress Silvia Calderoni (Sky TV series Romulus, Gucci’s “Ouverture Of Something That Never Ended”, Jonathan Nossiter’s “Last Words”).
Everything Burns is R.Y.F.’s first foray into electronic music, and an homage to a period of explosive creativity and inspiration. With the pandemic forcing musicians off the road, Morello found herself at home working less with a guitar and more with synthesizers and drum machines, instruments she had long admired in avant-garde bands like Moor Mother and Special Interest.
She wrote every note and lyric in two weeks and completed the recordings with Andrea Cola (Sunday Morning) under the supervision of multi instrumentalist and musician Bruno Dorella (Ronin, OvO, Bachi da Pietra) in two weeks more. Mix and Master has been committed to Maurizio Baggio (The Soft Moon – Boy Harsher). “It was really fast and really special. For the first time in 20 years, I finally felt free to let everything inside me come out,” says Morello, “There was no plan. It was like a work of inspiration that was burning inside of me.”
First single “Cassandra,” originally written for the play, is both dark and disco, a party song evocative of Morello’s new wave, post-punk influences like New Order and Le Tigre. “I think that women need to raise their heads, as Cassandra says in the tragedy, and be proud of themselves,” says Morello, “We need to be a little bit crazy and out of control sometimes. It’s time to take the powers back.”
“There is something terrible in reality, and I don’t know what it is”
