Ratinoff’s love of retro influences shines through his new set of songs. See the video for “I Need It” here: https://youtu.be/CIL-_7ETVyo
“The inspiration for the song came from an experience I had when I kept crossing paths with a girl I went to middle school with and always had a crush on. I avoided making eye contact, and I know she was doing the same… it’s that awkwardness of wanting to say something but not wanting to say the wrong thing and how that uncertainty can stay with you from middle school into adulthood” explains Ratinoff.
“I Need It” is the follow up to his debut song and video for “Run Away” which has garnered over 116k views since its premiere three weeks ago. Both songs are a taste of his ‘80s inspired rock n’ roll from his upcoming debut EP, out October 2 via Creative Entertainment Network/The Orchard.
