Interview: RinRin Unveils Her Raw Emotions, Exploring ‘Miss Miserable’ and Embracing the Unhinged in Music

by the partae

Can you tell us about the inspiration behind your new single, “Miss Miserable,” and what message you hope to convey through it?

I was inspired during a low time in my life. There were lots of thoughts in my head and I realized in that moment that ‘this would sound good as lyrics.’ There’s no outright message, it’s more of an expression of my feelings and for those who can relate to how I felt and what I went through, to ensure they don’t feel alone in their own feelings.

How does “Miss Miserable” fit into the larger narrative of your music journey and the evolution of your sound?

Miss Miserable is the last song I’ll be releasing before my upcoming EP which is a completely different sound to my early works and Miss Miserable. You could say it’s the closing chapter of that era. I want to make bolder creative choices in my future work, incorporating genres that wouldn’t appear in Miss Miserable and other works prior to that.

What were some of the challenges you faced while creating “Miss Miserable,” and how did you overcome them?

For Miss Miserable, it was more of a method of expression, an outlet for all my emotions so I felt like its production wa more therapeutic than challenging.

Could you elaborate on how your influences, such as BABYMETAL, Poppy, and Bring Me The Horizon, have shaped your approach to music, particularly in this latest release?

For me, the topics these artists sing about are my main takeaways from their creations. They sing about heavy topics and are very emotion-driven. For Miss Miserable in particular, I wouldn’t say they were my main influences but it’d be my guitarist since he was the one who wrote out the riffs and such, I wrote its lyrics and melodies.

You’ve described “Miss Miserable” as an ode to your younger self. How did you navigate the process of channeling personal experiences into your songwriting?

One of the things that helped me get into the mindset was reading the diaries of a younger me. It was like I was a penpal from the future, conversing with her as I wrote.

“Miss Miserable” marks the beginning of a new era for you. Can you share any insights into what listeners can expect from your upcoming music releases?

Expect the unhinged. I was more timid at the start, but now I’m holding back way less when it comes to my ideas and experimenting.

How do you balance the infectious energy and raw emotion present in “Miss Miserable” with your intricate guitar work and songwriting prowess?

I think teamwork made both aspects balanced. While my guitarist worked on the production of the instruments, I worked on the melodies and lyrics and the overall of its production to give the song its ‘RinRin’ vibe.

“Guns and Grenades” received critical acclaim and won several awards. How does the success of that single influence your approach to releasing new music, especially “Miss Miserable”?

For me, it made me want to change up what I make. I don’t want to always do the same thing. I love experimenting and exploring so whenever something’s successful, I try going a different direction.

Your music has garnered significant attention on streaming platforms and radio stations. How do you leverage these platforms to connect with your audience and promote your music effectively?

By getting assistance from our publicists and releasing songs as frequently as possible, creating more social media content as much as I can, taking advantage of the free marketing platforms available. 

As you continue to tour and perform live, how do you adapt your music to engage different audiences, especially considering your diverse influences and sound?

Based on my experiences so far, I can see that my audience enjoys what I’m doing. If anything, the positive reception encouraged me to be unafraid to express myself through my music.

Can you share any memorable experiences or highlights from your recent Australian tour and performances with renowned rock and metal bands?

The highlight of my experience was hanging out with like-minded individuals. The bands I played with, Live Like Animals and Inferiority Complex, and I were a little awkward at first but we got along so well and even had a killer game of mini golf. It’s always great to make connections with people with the same passions I do because we go from strangers to good friends at the end of it all.

With representation in multiple regions, including Australia, New Zealand, China, and Japan, how do you navigate the challenges and opportunities of reaching audiences across different cultural landscapes?

Music is a universal language that can transcend a lot of things and reach people no matter where they are. There will always be fans of metal and rock around the world and I want to connect with them through my music despite the different cultural landscapes while respecting that culture’s customs.
