Rachel Bochner’s Latest Single “Sucker Punch”: A Cathartic Revenge Fantasy for the Brokenhearted
Rachel Bochner is a New York based singer-songwriter. With a passion for turning the trials of navigating your twenties into pop music anyone can sing along to, and through refreshingly honest lyricism, Rachel is unafraid to own the thoughts, mistakes, and emotions we tend to shy away from. Giving grit to vulnerability, Rachel melds the dark with the whimsical, creating a musical thumbprint that could only be recognized as her own.
Her latest single “Sucker Punch” is the first track to be released from her upcoming EP. The type of song you’ll want to scream-sing in your car when you’re in need of free therapy, “Sucker Punch” is the cathartic soundtrack of a post-heartbreak revenge fantasy. Over moody, distorted guitars and heavy layered bass tracks, the track says to hell with the high road… being petty is WAY more fun.
Speaking about the single, Rachel shares, “Sucker Punch is the kind of song where there was a clear emotion I wanted to convey that I think so many people can relate to, especially right after getting your heartbroken. I love that the song sits in this revenge fantasy and lists out all these things I could do to get back at the person who hurt me, but at the end of the day, it’s just me lost in my head trying to make myself feel better.”
The narrative behind “Sucker Punch” sets the tone for the rest of the EP, as we see the songwriter delving into the things we do to make ourselves feel a little better, even if they aren’t the healthiest. A delightful concoction of songs that dance between vulnerable, melancholy, energetic and playful, Rachel provides us with soundtracks to listen to when we want to get in our feels, vent our frustrations when someone does us dirty and straight up party to. The artist adds, “I’d encourage listeners to unapologetically feel their feelings, NEVER take shit from unworthy men, and remember that even when you’re sad, you’re still hot.”
With her debut EP set for release later this year, Rachel Bochner is certain to make some waves. Her fiery, relatable and playful sound is sure to become your newest addiction.
