Watch: Rina Sawayama – Bad Friend

“The song is about the heartbreak of losing a friendship and realising that you were the cause of the breakdown. When you hear the song, this is not the video you imagine – but that’s exactly what we wanted. The music video is a reimagining of the themes in Bad Friend; of longing, loss, self-hate and ultimately self-love.”


Rina Sawayama – Cherry

This throwback pop sends me back to the 90’s while still keeping that trademark soul edge that Rina does so excellently. It’s a genuinely infectious slice of future pop that doesn’t feel any shame on sampling the past.
