Raphael battles for love with a boxer in
Boys Are Trouble
Gay Artist Brings Trouble To The Dance Floor And Boxing Ring
The soulful electro-pop singer Raphael releases “Boys Are Trouble”, a dark, seductive track. Written by Raphael, the song − with its moody piano, beautifully sad strings, and raw vocals that exude vulnerability − is being compared to ballads by Lana Del Rey and The Weekend. “Boys Are Trouble is a song about addiction, whether it is love, sex, or the human body,” explains the artist.
“I often find that just when I think I’m in control of my emotions, a sexy guy comes along, carnality takes over and I fall to pieces.” “Boys Are Trouble” is the second single from Raphael’s upcoming album, The Dark of My Mind.
In his music, Raphael aims to bring back the love. According to the young singer, most songs today emphasize independence and an “I’m too cool” attitude towards romance. He misses the desperation and vulnerability in songs from the past where vocalists unapologetically gushed over someone.
