Thanks to the likes of Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo, when it comes to pop music it is all about the moody attitude and ethereal vocals right now, and offering her take on this sound is singer-songwriter renforshort with her latest track “fall apart” which is taken from her EP “off saint dominique” that has dropped today. Featuring rising artist glaive, the track is a display of modern pop perfection. Youthful emotion-soaked lyrics and effortlessly sweet vocals meet charged electric guitars as the song seeps into the punk genre with its grungy edge. And with the young star having collaborated on the track’s production, her musical talent shines throughout this offering and the entirety of the project, which includes glimmering musical displays such as “wannabe” and “lust to love”.

“glaive was so easy to work with, he’s so talented and so right for the song, the first draft he sent was actually perfect and his writing is just exceptional,” explains renforshort. “I think for ‘fall apart’ I got into producing because at this point in my life I realised it’s not just a producers job to make the song because the artist really knows what they want.”

While this track may stand as the singer’s debut stint in production, this is not her first time around the musical track. With her previous works having gained her accolades such as YouTube Trending Artist on the Rise this year and a performance at Lollapalooza lined up, it is clear that her vocal abilities and fusion of pop and punk sounds is resonating highly with listeners. So, watch out Billie and Olivia, renforshort is coming for your crown.

Check out our interview with renforshort below…


Hey ren! We are almost half way through the year, how has it been for you so far?
It’s been alright, it’s obviously not been the best year of my life but it could’ve been a lot worse and I’m really grateful to have been healthy and safe throughout this year. I have been able to continue making music which is super important for me and my mental well-being so I’ve been all right.

With last year being so difficult, what’s one thing you’ve learned about yourself?
I learned so much about myself, being locked up in one place for an extended period of time. I learned that I actually really enjoy being alone, I also learned that I have to stop caring so much about stupid things and start letting things go because it’s just too much on me mentally for no reason and has been making me feel really bad for along time. Eventually, letting these things go I have found way more time for myself and more time to focus on my music which is amazing!

So far you’ve been named VEVO DSCVR artist and YouTube trending Artist on the Rise this year alone! How does this make you feel?
It’s just been really cool seeing other people like what I do and appreciate what I do it makes everything so worth it! I never thought that I would be in this position ever. I grew up watching VEVO and watching my favourite artists on there, also YouTube is fucking YouTube and it’s probably my favourite social app so it was insane opening it and seeing my face I’m just super appreciative of everything and I feel so lucky!

What was your reaction to this?
I was in awe! As I was saying before, opening YouTube and seeing my face and having people message me being like ‘yo your face is on the YouTube front page’ was just surreal. And when I got the offer to do VEVO DSCVR I shit my pants, not literally but metaphorically! I was so excited and it was so fun to shoot.

And you’ve just released your new track “fall apart” take us through the production process! What was it like working with glaive? It’s the first song you helped produced, what made you venture into producing?
glaive was so easy to work with, he’s so talented and so right for the song, the first draft he sent was actually perfect and his writing is just exceptional! I think for “fall apart” I got into producing because at this point in my life I realised it’s not just a producers job to make the song, because the artist really knows what they want. So I was comfortable speaking up and saying what I wanted and just laying down some guitar and the producer I was working with, Stint, is so cool and was just so cool with me doing that!

What was the inspiration behind the song?
The song didn’t really have any inspiration to be completely honest, I just played some random shit on the guitar and Stint made it sound really good! Lyrically I was in a really bad mood I was in a fight with someone and I just wrote down everything I was feeling to an extreme and it ended up being pretty sick.

What do you want people to take away from your music?
I want people to find comfort in my music, I focus a lot of my time on lyrics that are relatable to a lot of people. I love when people reach out to me and tell me that my music has helped them in some way. That’s why I write how I write! It feels like I’m using my platform to do what I wish other people did for me when I was younger, and that’s finding comfort and relatability in music!

It’s taken from your upcoming EP out today, what can we expect and what was your mindset going into the project?
You can expect very relatable songs, but very different sounds. It’s all about this past year of my life, people I’ve met, sexuality, bad situations, good situations and what I discovered about myself. Sonically there’s something different for everyone because it’s so diverse and I think that’s pretty cool and something I’ve wanted to do for a while!

Aside from the release, what are you most excited for?
I have so much fun stuff going on, I get to go on tour again, I did Stephen Colbert which was insane and I still can’t believe it, I’m playing Lollapalooza which is a dream! there’s just so much stuff going on that I’m so beyond excited and grateful for!
