SINGLE REVIEW: The Game by RinRin

Emerging pop-punk Perth music artist RinRin has just released her debut track The Game. The Philippine-born Australian-based singer-songwriter and musician has grown up with the guitar, and her new track is a breathtaking example of this astonishing musical symbiosis. While refining her guitar skills as an advanced student, RinRin was already crafting music in GarageBand on her iPad, mimicking game soundtracks and exploring the technological aspects of modern music production. And all this while absorbing the material of a variety of influences including Paramore, Orianthi, Baby Metal and Avril Lavigne, a kaleidoscopic array of impressions RinRin has developed into a stunning arsenal of musical ammunition: slick stagecraft, technical fluency, and deft songwriting. After joining Perth emo-rock group Love Me Natalie in 2019 and releasing a series of singles, RinRin is now embarking on a solo venture. The Game is a searing post-punk nu-metal pop delight, with RinRin’s idiosyncratic inventiveness at the fore. This is colossal J-rock energy with next-generation sumptuous aesthetics. With Spotify streams, already over the 30k mark with 9k listeners a month—the largest segments of her audience spread across LA, London and New York—and YouTube views at 19k, The Game’s entrancing effervescent, unrelenting glow has all the raw purity and sublime power to catapult RinRin into a shimmering pop future. The Game features riveting, swirling multi-pronged layers of sonic delight; guitar-driven, with a hypnotic utilisation of synth touches, the track is ablaze with versatility, nuance, and pure indelible character. A post-punk rhythmic groove makes way for RinRin’s incandescent, vibrant vocal performance, one accompanied by the intermittent application of her skilful guitar dexterity. But The Game is also replete with masterful pop hooks and ascending arrangement that leaves you with no doubt that RinRin is a new exciting musical force. Taken from her upcoming EP due in 2021, The Game is teen empowerment writ large and bright, a hook-laden, luminous antidote to the times.
