RISISNG BROOKLYN-based artist Rence has released his new single ‘Type 2’ today.
Fusing organic instrumentation and glitchy production from the jump, faint acoustic guitar echoes in the background as Rence admits: “I’m a Type 2 when it’s time to fight you.”
He rides a minimalist beat and dips into impressive falsetto before doubling back towards the hypnotic hook, “I get why you feel like, like I don’t mind.”
Once again, he artfully balances alternative, R&B, hip-hop, and pop all at once within his own world.
The song arrives on the heels of the bold and buzz-y single “hate u, btw,” released earlier this year along with a DIY music video. It has since amassed close to 600k streams.
Continuing to capitalise on the momentum sparked by the release of his Fall 2019 EP, Rence continues to receive acclaim and accolades.
Pigeons & Planes named him among “Best New Artists of the Month” while his breakout single “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] recently surpassed six million global streams.
Sharing real life snapshots in song, Rence magnifies his personal perspective through a genre-less palette, bordering pop, alternative, electro, indie and hip-hop all at once, yet never dipping into one for too long.
He introduced himself on the breakthrough independent project, Pink. The lead single “Baby Blue” racking up nearly 10 million streams. Peers such as Chelsea Cutler and Fletcher lent support as critical acclaim came from Hilly Dilly, Lyrical Lemonade, Ones To Watch, Elevator Magazine, and more. Tastemaker Zane Lowe handpicked “Ways To Go” as his “World Record” on Apple Music’s Beats 1.
