28-year-old Rina Sawayama’s 2017 debut mini-album RINA saw her land on a heap of "Best Of..." lists, including those by The Guardian, The Needle Drop and Pitchfork. 2018 saw Rina release her R&B/pop infused single”'Cherry,” her most personal and political track to date, a track praised by the likes of Fader, i-D, Nylon, and Dazed with the latter describing Rina's music as "sugar-coated R&B with meaning for the digital age." Rina took her show on the road and in the past year has gone from playing 150 cap venues to selling out London's iconic "Heaven," touring the US twice, performing with Charli XCX at her POP2 show in London, and supporting Years & Years at the O2 Arena. The amalgamation of these experiences makes up the foundations for Rina's unique sound that has set her apart from her peers since day one. With nods to the productions of 90s and 00s pop stalwarts Max Martin, Timbaland and The Neptunes. Rina, alongside collaborator Clarence Clarity has crafted a soundscape that pays homage to the past while gleefully rushing head-on into the future.
