In the overly formatted world of current pop music, Rina Sawayama dares to mix the most surprising styles with audacity and elegance. Just like her brand new single “Frankenstein”, where universes as opposite as Garbage and Girls Aloud are telescoped. The Japanese-born British singer has now confirmed several exclusive dates in Europe, including a highly anticipated concert in Brussels.
Revealed in 2020 with her critically acclaimed debut album ‘SAWAYAMA’, this unclassifiable artist is making a name for herself with unstoppable tracks, including the irresistible singles ‘XS’ and ‘Comme des Garçons’. This first try is a master stroke, combining unlikely musical influences, surfing from Britney Spears’ pop to Destiny’s Child’s R’n’B and Korn’s metal. The album logically ended up on the year’s best-of lists, including those of the New York Times (#2), the Guardian (#3) and Rolling Stone (#6), but also on Sir Elton John’s personal list. Rina Sawayama is now back with ‘Hold The Girl’, an ambitious and original record that combines intimate storytelling with catchy melodies. A new icon, she pushes the boundaries and reinvents genres with audacity and talent. Discover an extraordinary artist on 14 February 2023.
