RaYche P’s emotionally charged ‘Bigotry & Blood’ explores themes of diversity, bigotry, and the power of music
Rayche P has released her latest EP, “Bigotry & Blood,” a thought-provoking track that tackles social issues, challenges societal norms, and encourages listeners to question the society.
The title and content of the song are intentionally subjective and open to interpretation, allowing individuals to find their own meaning and significance within its melodies and lyrics.
Speaking to I Love Limerick at a listening party in the middle of Limerick Pride Week ahead of her performance at this Saturday’s Pridefest, Rayche P said, “The inspiration came from my own journey as a person in the LGBT community, my own mistreatment from church institutions and also it reflects the murders and attacks that have been happening.”
The Limerick singer-songwriter described it as a type of “protest music” saying they wanted to “get the word out”.
“I would be a conscious artist, I want people to be sparked for conversation and talk about these things because they’re really important,” she said.
Drawing from personal traumas and struggles, RaYche P’s music delves into themes of mistreatment based on sexuality and the countless attacks and murders of minorities or those considered different.
Through her work, she aims to bring attention to the challenges faced by marginalized communities and inspire empathy and understanding.
“The genre, it’s hard to pigeon-hole it,” she says, continuing, “It is like a fusion of different things, I will say there is Irish instrumentation, also hip-hop, pop, some of the vocals would be inspired by Destiny’s Child and Beyonce, all that kind of stuff, so it kind of came from that as well. But it is hard to pigeon-hole it because that’s not what I like to do as an artist.”
RaYche P produced the music because she wanted to “challenge” herself while working with a co-producer.
