RENNAN is a 100% independent artist who has been consistently pushing his sound forward in the Sydney scene since 2016. Having since received Triple J play and Unearthed radio rotation as well as features in Stoney Roads and PULP it’s no secret that RENNAN’s work is a stamp of quality. He’s directed two of his own music videos, Honey ft. Ms. Thandi, which is a psychedelic drama and Parachute, a schlocky [Adult Swim] style parody of 80’s VHS dating services.
Written, recorded and produced in one session with Sydney’s most diverse producer DeliPres while their home city was choking in smoke HEATHENS. offers listeners a plate of burning catharsis as RENNAN expresses undying frustration at the cost of our modern, consumption fuelled existence.
On first listen it’s clear that ‘HEATHENS.’ is the culmination of years of experimentation and artistic development, being a true crystallisation of life experiences onboard a sinking ship in late-stage capitalism. It’s a musing on the feeling of hell on earth. A dialogue between a politician, a fallen angel, or any advocate for the unethical indulgences we are privileged enough to have our morality challenged with on a daily basis.
