Rachel Chinouriri shares new single ‘Ribs’

The alt pop artist said she wrote the song when she had a chest infection and a crush on someone at the same time.

Rachel Chinouriri has shared a new single, ‘Ribs’, which premiered as BBC Radio One’s Hottest Record In The World last night (25th April). The song is the follow-up to the alt pop singer’s viral smash ‘Maybe I’m Lonely’ and was inspired by the combined experience of the alt-pop singer suffering a chest infection as she dealt with a crush on someone and finding commonality between the two. She said: ““I wrote ‘Ribs’ when I had a chest infection and a crush on someone and it was annoying me. So I combined my two annoyances and described my liking of someone as a chest infection that was hurting my ribs because I actually had achy ribs. I then went to the pub and had some of the best ribs I’ve eaten from the Staplow Oak Inn and it was quite fun to make. So basically fancying someone is a sickness which you can either cure or it can make you worse - in my case I never recovered.” Watch the video below: Rachel is shortly set to embark on a headline tour, which includes a sold-out four-night residency at London’s Hoxton Hall.
