by the partae

Perth alternative metal rising star RinRin proves she’s one to watch with explosive new single “Guns and Grenades“. Releasing in time for her upcoming showcase at Bigsound 2022, the dystopian single is just the beginning for what’s in store for RinRin.

Guns and Grenades” is about doing something you don’t want to but are forced to out of obligation, as is so often the case in war. “The song is not about taking sides or the political aspect of the war,” explains RinRin. “It’s for the people who don’t have any choice and are being used by politics: the fathers and brothers who should be with their families but have to stay to defend their country; Lovers who belong to opposing sides but have to fight each other because they have a duty to.”

With a fierce passion and dedication to mastering her craft, RinRin has soared to great heights off the back of her intricate guitar work and impressive songwriting abilities, and has already been snapped up by management company Riverman (Placebo, Deaf Havana) and is represented by Destroy All Lines in Australia/New Zealand and Paradigm in Europe.

RinRin has been invited to showcase her captivating live show at Bigsound 2022 in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley in early September where she’ll perform at both Ric’s Backyard on Tuesday September 6 and Woolly Mammoth on Wednesday September 7. RinRin joins the line up alongside fellow alternative kings and queens in Future Static, The Last Martyr, To Octavia, The Atomic Beau Project, The Rions, Waxflower, Wildheart and many more.

They say that overnight success takes 10 years but RinRin burst fully formed onto the scene in summer 2020 with her debut single “The Game“. 20 year old Qarin (RinRin) Hipe began her musical career at the age of 13 playing guitar in her father’s cover band. RinRin continued to build her stage presence in various acts before finally striding out with her own material.

Seek the Truth” dropped in January 2021 and made its way into the Top 10 AMRAP Metro Charts and the triple j Unearthed Metal Charts. Both singles brought international attention to RinRin and by summer 2021, she had the support of Riverman and Paradigm.

Hellfire” stormed in as the first single from RinRin’s debut EP, ‘Episode 1‘, which was released in September 2021 alongside a stunning video of RinRin’s vision of the dystopian storyline that weaves throughout her music. “Shadows” became a highlight from the extended play and was added to the Spotify editorial playlist, Rock Out. RinRin’s Spotify streams now sit at a comfortable quarter of a million after just two years since inception.

With an undeniable sense of direction, RinRin is ready to play her powerful brand of pop punk wherever it will take her.

Guns And Grenades” is available and streaming everywhere now.
