Powerhouse singer Rachel Lorin today releases her brand new single “Kerosene”. The song exclusively premiered on V13 with an essay written by Rachel, detailing the meaning behind the song.
She wrote: For everyone who knows me well, they know my first relationship was not an easy one. Of all the first loves I could’ve had… I ended up with the most challenging and toxic relationship ever. Every bit of lie or betrayal that could’ve happened, happened. So much of my record coming up is about the heartbreak I went through with my ex.”
V13 says, “As far as musicians and recording artists go, you won’t find many more prolific and hard-working than Rachel Lorin…She finds motivation in approaching [topics] with a dark sense of humour that adds some lightness to the otherwise serious nature of these topics. What brings it all together is a fearlessness that is very evident in her music.”
Rachel’s powerful vocals emphasize the heartbreaking message of the song about a relationship that has fallen apart, forcing Rachel to “burn it down.” “Kerosene” starts quietly but builds towards a climax that keeps the energy up until the last note.
With the release of her 2019 single “Gold” Rachel told Celeb Mix, “‘Gold,’ along with the rest of the new record coming out, is extremely different than anything I’ve ever done. I’ve dabbled in almost every genre from pop to rock to broadway to EDM, but this new sound is by far my favorite.” “Kerosene”, with its heavy bass, strong vocals, and catchy melody, acts as another step towards Rachel’s journey for a new sound.
Having started her music career on BET’s reality show, The Next Big Thing, Rachel has since been featured in publications like Pancakes and Whiskey who stated, “Rachel’s voice soars above and around.” Rachel has shared the stage with artists such as Evanescence and Of Mice and Men, as well as touring across the country.
