Raavi Announces New EP, Unveils New Single ‘Henry’

    Brooklyn-based artist Raavi Sita has announced a new EP, The Upside, sharing the single ‘Henry’ along with the news. It’s out September 13 via Mtn Laurel Recording Co., and the band will go on tour with labelmates Sister. ahead of the release. Listen to ‘Henry’, which features The Nebulous Quartet, below.

    “‘Henry’ is a dissection of many experiences I had with boys during my formative years,” Sita explained in a statement. “It’s about realizing I wasn’t being seen by the boys and men in my life as just myself, but as a girl first. I grew up androgynous, able to act like a chameleon to fit in with my male and female friend groups with relative seamlessness in which my tomboy gender expression, while definitely acknowledged by my peers, also gave me a freedom to exist in both gendered worlds to some degree. At some point this reality came crashing down on me. I experienced what I think a lot of gender nonconforming kids go through in that I went from being viewed as Raavi, to Raavi the girl and all the implications that being a girl comes with.”
