Ralph, self-titled

This stream is no longer available

Holly Gordon

Any season is good for dancing, but the near arrival of spring always feels a bit more let-your-hair-down, shake-it-all-out than any other. And Ralph’s debut EP is the perfect antidote to standing still.

The Toronto artist just signed to 604 Records — home to Carly Rae Jepsen, Coleman Hell and Small Town Pistols — and has been buzzing along with millions of Spotify streams and a slot on the music service’s list of artists to watch this year.

With this debut EP, Ralph only shines brighter. All six tracks are crafty pop gems, sometimes driving in the lane of Haim’s ’80s throwbacks (“Cold to the Touch”), other times dancing on the disco synths of a goodbye to a man who just isn’t cutting it (“Tease”).

So let the sunshine in and follow Ralph toward the dance of spring — you won’t regret it.

Ralph's self-titled EP is out now. You can catch her at the CBC Music Festival on May 28 at Echo Beach — check that out here.
