Rina Sawayama – “This Hell”

The world is going down in flames, so might as well celebrate what community is left. “Got my invitation to eternal damnation / Get in line, pass the wine,” alerts Rina Sawayma on the bridge to her new song. “This Hell” anchors a forthcoming new record and douses lyrical gasoline on the proverbial fire, a declaration to enjoy the ride to hell. Well, so to speak. “Flame red carpet moment, posing for the paparazzi / Fuck what they did to Britney, to Lady Di and Whitney,” she harpoons the media circus. Background instrumentation is spooky and contrasts against the vibrating electric guitar. True to form, Sawayama fashions a magnificent genre fusion for the ages.
