Becky Waytoomuch (formerly known as APHRA) is the meticulously crafted left-of-pop persona of Rebecca Waychunas. Her music is infused experiences of personal struggle with both the grit of Philadelphia's DIY/ punk scene and the layered instrumentation of her electronica contemporaries - recalling the likes of a Coexist era The xx mixed with Mitski. Sadness is a Gesture took over two years to write, record, and produce. In both the songs’ evolution and physical manifestation, they trace a journey working through confusion by way of repeated mental and emotional breakdowns to immense personal growth and clarity.
Philadelphia has allowed Waychunas to grow as both a songwriter and performer and collaborate with artists across several different mediums. Her immersion in these communities has helped hone her proficiency in video production and dance choreography. The release of Sadness is a Gesture serves as both a reflection and expression of APHRA’s deeply personal and creative pursuits. She is currently preparing her second EP which is scheduled to be released in Summer of 2024.
