Rein – “Electric” | Review

Scandinavian artist, Rein, is back with her intense, genre-bending sound on new single, “Electric.”

Joanna Reinikainen performs under the moniker of Rein, and my, does she perform!

When you think of music that comes from Sweden (and eastern Europe in general), you usually imagine perfectly crafted pop that’s slick and almost too glossy to be real – well, Rein smashes that stereotype to smithereens.

“Electric” is another example of her hardcore-pop, punk, dance and all-around rave sound that makes the listener’s heart race right up to the final beat – honestly, this is a workout if you’re just sat there.

Rein’s chanty, anthemic vocals that drive the rebellious nature of the track complete the industrial and out-of-this-world vibe of this track.

The erraticness of the track carries the same amount of urgency and energy that metal music carries, however, Rein has a way of giving the track a catchiness and chorus melody that gives it the pop nod, and therefore commercial feel.

Check out the track below and let us know what you think in the comments!
