New York City chanteuse Rachel Lynn brings on a bevy of ballet dancers to enhance the vivid drama of her piano-led number "The Claim".

Rachel Lynn, a powerhouse vocalist out of New York City, bolsters her take on pop with her classical training as a singer, something quite uncommon in the modern pop landscape. Such vocal gusto is more than obvious from a single spin of her tune “The Claim”, which finds her in striking form.
Lynn tells PopMatters about the song and its new video, which you can view below, “I wrote ‘The Claim’ about people and situations I didn’t understand. Sometimes you’re left feeling trapped and lonely in response to the things you can’t seem to comprehend. I love the way these amazingly talented dancers were able to capture this kind of frustrated and isolated emotion.”

“The Claim” can be heard on Lynn’s To Street & Transfer EP, which is out now (iTunes).
