renforshort returns with new single ‘serpentine’

Canadian alt-pop star renforshort is back with her first official tune since the release of her spectacular album dear amelia back in 2022.

Her new single ‘serpentine’, produced by Jonny Lattimer (Rina Sawayama, Ellie Goulding, James Bay) & Jeff Hazin (Glaive, Tai Verdes, Midwxst), is an ode to independence and isolation, with a melodic nod to the work of Elliot Smith, who has always been a huge inspiration to Lauren and her craft.

Speaking on the inspiration behind today’s release, renforshort shares; “’serpentine’ is a song that at its surface is about walking alone through London. In crafting the melody, we drew inspiration from the style of the legendary Elliott Smith, whose influence is evident in the musical arrangement. Working with Johnny was a truly enriching experience, as his creativity and talent added so much depth to the song. It’s a special piece for me, being the first track I envisioned for the project reflecting the independence, solitude and isolation I felt during my month-long stay alone in London. The simplicity and honesty of the song captures such a personal moment, and I’m grateful for the experiences I had while creating this song, with a nod of gratitude to the melodic influence of Elliott Smith.”
