“..not a million miles from Kelela’s out-there R&B team-ups with the Night Slugs people, mixed with a Scandinavian quirk-pop sensibility”

The Guardian

London’s Rainer is comprised of Rebekah Raa (formerly Stricken City) and Nic Nell (his producer name is Casually Here and he’s one half of Young Colossus with the Maccabees’ Orlando Weeks). Referring to themselves as “pop satirists”, they admit to loving the sheer expensive bigness of American pop productions from R Kelly to Miley to the Weeknd while also paying attention to Rinse FM and the post-garage chart sounds that have emerged out of that world. Thus far, they’ve released a double A-side, Girls/Money, and an EP entitled Hope/Satin/Glass/Dreams.
