If I was Rachel I’d be worried, to be honest. Here is the new single from Helsinki’s Skinjobs. Ominous, claustrophobic, urgent, a dream within a nightmare. She’s not getting out of this. “Rachel” is all stabbing keyboards, breathless, barely-contained emotion, and booming percussion, it builds and builds up to a satisfyingly deranged crescendo.

Apparently, it’s a love story and a dystopia nightmare inspired by The Handmaid’s Tale and Blade Runner. Now it all makes sense. The demo of the track is pretty fine too.
