Swedish dream-pop artist Rebecka Reinhard shares her latest single ‘Whale’ via Crowds and Power on May 12th. A subversive indie-rock song, ‘Whale’ demonstrates Rebecka’s ability as a songwriter to make the world stop with her music. Comprising of distorted guitars and loose drums, ‘Whale’ feels both recognisable and entirely new. Paired with the delicate and dreamy production is Rebecka’s distinct and punchy vocal, as well as her killer melodies, that unfurl towards the chorus. Lyrically the song which is both personal and prescient speaks to our fractured socio-political climate and our current isolated situation.
Speaking about the song, Rebecka said: “‘Whale’ sounds happy but is quite sad and cynical and has a deep, hidden melancholy, a bit like old soul songs like ‘Tracks of My Tears.”
‘Whale’ is the first track to be taken from Rebecka’s upcoming EP of the same name, due for release later this summer. Recorded between London and the Swedish countryside, the record comes after a period of musical and personal discovery. Having left her native Stockholm, Rebecka found herself living in Paris, before relocating to London in 2014. It was there that her musical trajectory solidified, and in the summer of 2018, she started recording with producer Anders Kållmark.
