Emerging singer-songwriter renforshort releases her latest single “nostalgic (luvsick).” The track is another testament to the rising star’s multi-facetted artistry with her unique sound that transcends both age and genre. The song features intimate lyrics of unabashed honesty over a sweet-sounding melody, the pop anthem seamlessly captures the feeling of adolescent heartbreak.

Speaking of the track’s creative inspiration and forthcoming music video, ren states:

“’nostalgic (luvsick)’ is a really important song to me, I’ve been sitting on it for so long and it is truly one of my favourites! This song is very visual for me, and it reminds a lot of Scott Pilgrim, which is basically the backbone for the entire creative arch surrounding the song, the visuals and cover art are reminiscent of Scott’s character, I think that it’s really cool to be able to be in Scott’s shoes and play his character for a brief moment, also pulling in Edgar Wright’s creative style is something I wanted to be prevalent in the creatives. The song in itself is just reminiscing on past experiences with a person and now more than ever it feels very real for me, after all my friends have left for school and are moving away I feel like I’m thinking about our times together more than ever and this song really brings out those feelings and moments!”

Continuing to give fans a taste of what’s to come, “nostalgic (luvsick)” follows the ren’s critically acclaimed “fuck, i luv my friends,” which Rolling Stone praised, “the perfect piece of quarantine pining.” American Songwriter proclaimed, “’filmf’ has the sheen of the grand era of late 90s teen pop with the self-aware alternapop of the last ten years,” and Idolator hailed, “the summery anthem… is a rush of jangly guitars and pop hooks.” The song has garnered over 2 million global streams since its July release.
