Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

Raphael - " Boys are trouble"

After his awesome début "Superstar" and its hot vid by Elia Athans (here on Morphosis), Raphael is back with a follow-up entitled "Boys are trouble", also from his upcoming first album, "The dark of my mind". The 10-song release is a journey through modern love set to sexy, moody trip-hop and electro-pop sounds that are at times ethereal and dreamy and at other times flow over you with a wave of sexual urgency and romantic longing. This album is about those pieces in your mind that are the vulnerable, the risky and the naughty. "It’s about those things that you tuck in the back of your head and you don’t necessarily want to talk about or even want people to see", explained Raphael, who was born in New York and raised in Miami on a healthy dose of Nineties pop, Miami hip-hop, and Max Martin’s wall of sound choruses. The lead track, "Boys are trouble", offers a cautionary tale reminding one what getting lost in love can feel like. "It’s that feeling of always wanting more, but never getting enough. We think we’re in control of ourselves, and that’s not always the case", said Raphael. Directed by Alejandro E Fuenmayor, the video was inspired by New York City’s real life amateur boxing matches that pitch male models against local boxing talent, and sees the singer choose between a rich and powerful fight club organizer and a loser with a heart of gold, played by models Taylor Harris and William McLarnon. "I tend to fall for guys who are aloof and ridiculously overconfident. I become so consumed in vying for their attention that I completely lose myself", said Raphael about the inspiration behind the video. "Boys in trouble" is a song about addiction, whether it is love, sex or the human body. "I often find that just when I think I’m in control of my emotions, a sexy guy comes along, carnality takes over and I fall to pieces", added Raphael. A remix by Joe Gauthreaux has also been released.
