Los Angeles’ Jaclyn Rachelle doesn’t care what you think, and I mean literally. Her new single “I Don’t Care” is an anthem for those being held back by a hater’s negativity. Rachelle makes it point to inspire the listener to not give a fuck and liberates them to be exactly who they want to be; the chorus of the 2:33 long track is cutting and to the point. She puts it simply, ”I’m a real bitch, I ain’t taking your shit.” You can visualize those who fueled the track’s creation being left speechless after one listen. Her departure from R&B is a complete contrast from 2019’s “LMK” which conveys a sense of longing for a lover and the message more in line with her single “Get Back”. ᴙozéI produced “I Don’t Care,” so be prepared for accompanying visuals from him within a month or two.

Philadelphia-based queer punks Witch Weather have a message for anyone who feels hopeless and worthless: you are not alone.

Join Alchemical Records as they connect with Witch Weather to discuss the band’s new self-titled album, their search for a sense of belonging as members of the queer community, the important element that keeps the duo’s creative bond strong, and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
