Rain on Monday is constantly finding ways to explore and combine his singer/songwriter abilities with retro-futuristic elements to create unique and powerful songs that evoke an immediate emotional response. The juxtaposition of Raimond’s husky defeated voice with carefully orchestrated music creates a lush and expressive soundscape that elevates Rain on Monday above the myriad of singer/songwriters today.
Raimond Dagfjäll began writing the songs that would embody Rain on Monday in his hometown of Kiruna, a small Swedish mining town above the Arctic Circle. After Raimond moved to Uppsala he released the 3-track EP Fever Dream in 2018. Rain on Monday hasn’t gone unnoticed and the Music blog Where the Music Meets called the song Kill My Love, “…one of those debuts that stuck in our heads and creates a whole lot of expectations for the ones to follow”.
With the latest single When She is Here has Rain on Monday gone back to a more stripped-down acoustic sound. The goal is to keep a naked and honest vibe to capture the listener’s interest. When She is Here is about feeling a unique love for a person for the first time. You absorb the new experience while in your lonely moments doubt yourself and are afraid to ask yourself how long this relation will last. The song is recorded in Stockholm at the legendary Atlantis Grammofon and is released by Bolero Recordings.
