NEW MUSIC: VANESSA GIMENEZ | MAKE IT RAIN
London-based singer-songwriter Vanessa Gimenez released her solo debut song “Make It Rain” with an accompanying music video. It's been a long two years since the electro-pop outfit Swimming Girls disbanded. A bright spot in the late 2010's scene, the group dissolved in 2019. Much of what made Swimming Girls so delicious is retained here: Gimenez's vocal is far-off and delicate yet remarkably intimate, while a milky way of synths spins out around her. “Make It Rain was the first song written for this project,” Vanessa Gimenez said. “To me, it's about retaining that childlike sensibility that is full of hope and dreams. A mindset that a lot of people lose once they grow older.” The song will appear on her upcoming debut EP, which is expected to be released later this year.
