Rain on Monday (ROM) 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 and connected with the producer Thomas Harsem (Still Parade, Intergalactic Lovers) who had relocated from Germany. Harsem added his shimmering touch to the collaboration and in April 2017 Rain on Monday released the debut single, “Kill My Love”. The debut didn’t go unnoticed and the Music blog “Where the Music Meets” called “Kill My Love”, “…one of those debuts that stuck in our heads and creates a whole lot of expectations for the ones to follow”. The expectations were met and surpassed with Rain on Monday’s second and more up-tempo single “Hiding Places”.
The new track Fever Dream (Release date November 16) is an almost cinematic song and vision about a couple on the run from life and responsibilities. This action is played in a blurred dream while you in reality lie in your bed sick and sweaty with the Fever Dream chorus repeatedly in your head. Fever Dream together with the songs Hiding Places and Kill My Love is now compiled into a 3-track EP. These songs go hand in hand and the raw sincerity of Raimond’s vocals and his emotive delivery counterbalances the synth progressions and production perfectly. The result is effective and infectious dance songs for dreamers.
