Vancouver’s funk/indie rock band Raincity released their latest single “Crazy” on March 8, 2020, with a video! This single is part of Raincity’s eponymous EP released in June 2019. This band draws its influences from very different artists such as Amy Winehouse, Moon Hooch and Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
Raincity formed in 2016 and was, before becoming a five-piece band, a jazz trio called Raincity Blue. They released their debut album Stuck On Replay in 2018, which they recorded at Rain City Recorders. At the beginning of 2018 the band was part of the CBC Searchlight Top 100.
They performed at many festivals such as the Rifflandia in Victoria and the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival. In terms of the press, they have had articles in Vancouver 24 Hr, Do250, The Nanaimo News Bulletin and Snipe News. They have also been invited by radio stations such as Pacific Sound Radio, Roundhouse Radio and CiTR Radio.
The single “Crazy” conveys a strong feminist message, hence the desire to make it happen on International Women’s Day on March 8. It’s about betrayal and manipulation.
It’s about a relationship where the other person hides things from you and makes you feel crazy or paranoid. The video for “Crazy” was directed by Wayne Chung and Bailey Woodq. It was made in an art museum.
