Today, 18-year-old singer-songwriter sensation renforshort releases the Mike Shinoda mix to her frenetic power-pop anthem “i drive me mad.” Shinoda gives a fresh take on the production of the personal track, written from ren’s own experience with the suffocating choke hold of anxiety. “i drive me mad” was co-written by Arcade Songs’ Pom Pom and Jesse Fink.

The release follows renforshort’s genre-spanning debut EP teenage angst, released on March 13, 2020 via Interscope Records. The EP was praised by TIME Magazine as, “intimate, catchy bedroom pop with a punk edge,” and NYLON proclaimed, “it hits how it sounds: seven potent tracks distilling adolescent turmoil into pop anthems with a gritty punk edge.” The rising star has used her time in quarantine to write and record several new tracks, expected to drop throughout the year, as she continues to polish her ever-evolving sound.
