Rinzen fuels intrigue for his debut album Bend The Light with the arrival of “Burnin’,” out now on Lane 8’s This Never Happened!
There’s been something extra special that Rinzen has been cooking in his studio, and he’s ready to give everyone a taste! “Burnin’,” featuring Shallou, is a fresh offering holding massive heat as it’s the primary representative for his forthcoming debut album, Bend the Light.
Arriving on Lane 8‘s treasured label, This Never Happened, on April 5, this collection of tunes will take revelers on a planetary trip to study extraterrestrial civilizations. Along the way, Rinzen’s infatuation for sci-fi and cyberpunk will reveal itself as he paints a sonic picture of spirituality, idealism, and a dystopian future.
While the world waits for the story to unfold, “Burnin'” offers a glimpse into the fantasy. The moody yet sublime soundwaves complement Shallou’s vocals, expressing deep romantic obsession. Keeping with this particular theme, the melodic details build and wane like a brooding flame until all light is extinguished with the closing pulse.
How will “Burnin'” intertwine with the intergalactic concept? We can only speculate right now, but luckily, this won’t be the only offering to arrive ahead of the full release. Rinzen promises that two more singles are on the way, and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to hear some of them on the road!
Those yearning for their chance to catch Rinzen can do so soon, as he’s getting ready to head out on the This Never Happened label tour. Experience his impressive sets at the stops in Vancouver, San Francisco, and Sacramento before he joins Nox Vahn for some b2b action in Phoenix, before jumping over to Sultan + Shepard‘s album tour in Toronto and Chicago.
