Your twenties are probably the most confusing times of your life, between figuring out what you want to do and attempting to get away with being a student for as long as possible. Yes, your twenties are filled with memories that you will carry with you for the rest of your life. Singer-songwriter Lani Renaldo puts all these confusing emotions into her latest single “Trainwreck”, and we’ve never been able to relate more. With melodic electronic guitars and crashing drums, Renaldo’s sad garage-pop anthem sits perfectly in between SZA’s “Drew Barrymore” and Two Door Cinema Club’s “What You Know”.
The single details the singer’s own personal issues, as she discusses her panic disorder and how society can prioritise success over happiness. When speaking about the single, Renaldo spoke about why the release is important to her, stating, “It holds space in a genre that typically isn’t occupied by black artists”. She confides, “If black artists are being represented, we’re typically pushed into hip hop & R&B categories… not as much rock, indie, or alternative.”
With her EP “NOHEARTBREAK2020” set for release later on this year, we’re excited to see how else the singer can evolve her sound.
