You may recognize renforshort from her recent single with Blink-182’s Travis Barker, but little do you know that she has plenty more alternative pop cuts under her belt. Born and raised in Toronto, renforshort has been garnering significant attention lately with festival performances and continental tours slated for this year. If you’re itching to hear the best of alternative pop nowadays, renforshort’s emotive new single, “i miss myself” should be next on your playlist.
There’s something incredibly special about renforshort’s signature sound, and “i miss myself” certainly reinforces that notion. With a soothing rhythm guitar as the foundation, “i miss myself” also highlights renforshort’s charming vocals. As the 20-year-old rediscovers herself, this cinematic track reminds us to stay true to who we are–no matter the circumstances.
On “i miss myself,” renforshort reflected,
“’i miss myself’ is about feeling like you need to be all these other people, until eventually you don’t know who you are anymore. I wanted the song to feel like when you’re having a conversation and trying to stay calm, until you finally can’t hold back anymore and everything just explodes.”
