Pop singer and songwriter Rachel Bochner has dropped her new single, “If I’m Gunna Be Sad (I Might As Well Look Hot Doing It)” from her upcoming EP coming this summer.
Produced and co-written by Tiger Darrow, “If I’m Gunna Be Sad (I Might As Well Look Hot Doing It)” is the second single off the EP. It's the ultimate breakup song as Bochner delivers relatable lyrics about dealing with heartbreak over moody, glitchy alt-pop production..
Bochner describes the sentiment behind the single, saying, “When I showed up at Tiger’s studio the day we wrote this single, all I knew is that I wanted to make a song we could strut to. We started off writing something that embodied more of an IDGAF attitude, but after a while we realized it just didn’t feel super authentic. There was a moment when we were working on it when we realized, okay, maybe we do kind of give a f*ck… but if we’re going to be sad, we might as well look hot doing it.”
Setting the tone for the rest of the EP, “If I’m Gunna Be Sad (I Might As Well Look Hot Doing It)” sees Bochner bouncing back from painful heartbreak. Throughout the EP, she delivers a mix of songs that dance between vulnerable, melancholic, energetic, and playful. She explains, "When people hear these songs, I want them to know it’s okay to feel their feelings, to find humor even in the darkness, and to remember that we have the power to define our own self worth."
Based in New York, Bochner's fiery pop sound and sharp lyricism has made major waves since her debut in 2020. She is unafraid to own the thoughts, mistakes, and emotions we tend to shy away from. With her EP set for release later this year, Rachel Bochner is poised to set the pop world ablaze.
