RAINDEAR: Veins (WTNSS Remix)
What if the Grimm Brothers fairy tale collection came with an indie electro vinyl to spin while you read along to Rapunzel and The Twelve Huntsmen? You’re traveling through the dark woods of human emotion—guided only by worldly instruments, ghostlike background sounds, and sugarcoated vocals by a young Swedish girl with a septum ring. RAINDEAR—AKA Rebecca Bergcrantz is both the dangling vines that block your view and your bright light at the end of the tunnel. And today she arrives with a lush WTNSS rework of her track, Veins.
With influences from both the destruction that heartbreak brings, to classic romance and pop songs from bands like The Beatles, Bergcrantz, is a lot like your favorite teen movies with a dark side (The Craft, High School Hellcats, and Heathers). Fusing together sweet, trippy dance beats with themes like war, cults, and greed, RAINDEAR (who will be dropping her forthcoming album this spring) has something to say: there is more than one side to every story, especially when that story is centered around love.
