The Canadian artist's latest is a gorgeous and infectious synth pop romp, exploring the frustration of waiting for the One.
RALPH's latest music video is a fun and heartfelt exploration of finding the One, and the temporary madness that comes with waiting for the love you've been looking for.
RALPH has been on a roll of late, with "Gravity," "No Muss No Fuss," and "Last Time" heralding the arrival of her upcoming EP Flashbacks & Fantasies. Each track explores a new facet of a relationship, ranging from the discovery of new love to the aggravation of running into an ex. But "Looking For You," out today, focuses on the exquisite pain of hoping someone new enters your life, someone who can open up the world for you. The track is a slowdown for RALPH, featuring muted drums buffeted by electronic claps, before synths and echoing background vocals make RALPH's voice sound momentous. "All this wishing's got me fading / Yeah, maybe I'm just impatient," she sighs just before the chorus kicks in.
The video follows RALPH as she does catch sight of her One—and then immediately loses him. From a coffeeshop to a park and finally at a trendy bar, RALPH sings about the frustration of looking as she keeps barely missing her meet-cute moment. We never get to clearly see his face, but that's kind of the point. RALPH gets the hopeless romance of waiting for the right one to walk in, and "Looking For You" is sweet and serious in its understanding of that particular kind of heartache, right up until she, and you, find the One when you need them most.

The Cocteau Twins' 1990 masterpiece is still the blueprint for dream pop.
For a band whose lyrics were famously difficult to make out most of the time, the Cocteau Twins left an indelible impact on the world of pop music.
The Scottish trio emerged in the 1980s as some of the most notable pioneers of dream pop, a subgenre of alternative rock defined by airy, sublime sonic textures. But it was their sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas—which turns 30 today—that truly withstood the test of time, affirming the Cocteau Twins' status as perhaps the most important dream pop act of all time.
Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.
This week anonymous street artist Banksy officially lost the European trademark to his "Flower Thrower" mural.
The guerrilla graffiti artist had engaged in a prolonged legal battle with the small greeting card company Full Colour Black—which was selling products featuring the image of a Palestinian man throwing a bouquet of flowers. But now a panel at the European Union Intellectual Property Office has announced their decision to revoke the artist's trademark on the grounds that he could not definitively prove himself to be the mural's creator.
