Joanna Reinikainen is energetic and unapologetic. Recording under the moniker of Rein, the Swedish singer isn’t your typical Scandinavian pop act, but rather an artist whose high octane-powered sound of electro, punk, dance and more, is pulse-raising and undoubtedly exciting.
Hailing from Stockholm, Rein kicked in the door of the industry like an unexpected tidal wave pushing at full force. Her 2016 self-titled EP bridged everything from electro-punk down to darkwave, an appropriate soundscape to her commanding delivery. Containing tracks like ‘Can’t Handle Me’ and ‘There Is No Authority But Yourself’, the record was like a siren sounding off to those ready to challenge a system of normality and the status quo. Her song ‘I Don’t Get Anything But Shit From You’ took things back to the raving sounds of electronic hardcore, pumping with unprecedented adrenaline. With her latest recording ‘Missfit’, Rein has teamed up with producer Owl Vision for another edgy electro anthem.
