Release can be a powerful thing. While the long process of reaching the end of your tether can be a painful, dragged-out mess of a journey, a series of kicks gradually pulling you down until you can’t take it anymore, the point at which it snaps and you break free from whatever’s been toxifying your life can be extremely cathartic. This is a process that Swedish newcomer Rein understands well. Joanna Reinikainen wrote ‘I Don’t Get Anything But Shit From You’, her latest single, after being “in a few really shitty relationships in the past” and claims that the “song really deals with all of that and gave me a channel to ventilate those emotions through”.
Rein describes her music as Electronic Body Music, which kind of sounds like techno on steroids. The song uses a jackhammer beat and Rein’s scorched vocal to unleash a tornado of audio violence upon the object of her disdain and pound them into a pulp. ‘I Don’t Get Anything But Shit From You’ is out now on Playground Music, and you can listen below.
