Rina Sawayama has released a new tune for the misunderstood – check out ‘Flicker’

It follows on from her recent hit, ‘Cherry’.

Rina Sawayama has released her new single, ‘Flicker’.

The London-based newcomer penned the track herself, with frequent collaborator Clarence Clarity on production duties. It follows on from her recent hit, ‘Cherry’.

Speaking about the new single, Rina explains: “The first day of reception year at school my teacher totally butchered my surname while calling out the register. I remember crying so hard and that was the first time I realised that I was different to all the others in class. 

“When I was writing ‘Flicker’ I was thinking how our name shapes our experience in life and identities us in a deeper way than we realise. Whether it’s a name that no one can say, or the frustration of being misgendered, or quite simply being misunderstood for who you truly are – this is a song for you.”
