“The track, an instant bop, is a reflection of the singer’s previous struggles and explores the meaning of self-acceptance.”
Passionate vocals and emotional lyrics that make you daydream about a simpler life are a feature of Reino Brink’s music.
After his previously released singles back in 2021, Brink is back with his new single entitled “Dance Till The Sunrise”, accompanied by the official music video, said his agent, Jehane Combrink from Frantic Fox.
Recorded and produced by Howie Combrink at The Hit Lab in Johannesburg, the pop artist told us more about the track and production process thereof.
“I went to the studio with a small 40-second demo track I made on my iPad. Howie and I completely changed the instruments. After a while, Howie started playing a guitar riff and from there we went with the vibe the song was giving,” said Brink.
“I would like people to describe the song as ‘having a good time while being free’. The song title is all about letting go and living in the moment even though things aren’t really working out for you. The inspiration was all about improving self-confidence. In a way, it’s all about not being scared of yourself as the lyrics go, ‘I don’t want to run away no more…’,” he said.
Accompanied, Reino also gifted his fans with the official music video, shot in a random location near Harties, by creative directors SEVVEN and Howie Combrink.
“The visuals portray the single most pleasantly. With its vintage-inspired settings, a white backdrop and instruments all over, one cannot help but daydream and being exported into an epic 80’s summer,” Brink said.
The visual radiates feelings of nostalgia told through Reino’s modern point of view and seamlessly translates the song’s story and energy to the screen.
“It serves as the perfect companion to this rising hit,” he said.
Brink said that “the idea behind the music video is all about how I started music by teaching all the things I know myself. In the music video, you can see me playing all the instruments. The theme we went for was a total disco 80’s vibe.”
Drawing inspiration from a plethora of musicians and genres such as the iconic 80s, Don Henley, Erasure and Sam Fender, he focuses on fusing pop melodies and deep songwriting.
“I attribute my ability to blend diverse musical influences in part to the various music environments I was exposed to while growing up,” he said.
“I’ve been listening to Sam Fender a lot lately. His music resonates with me in a big way. I wouldn’t say because of my upbringing, but more about not letting go of the anger and the heartbreak that occurred over the last few years when I was still in school. 2021 was a very emotionally rough year for me,” Brink added.
The track is a reflection of the singer’s previous struggles and explores the meaning of self-acceptance, he said.
Growing up, Reino was ultimately devoted to music, he was always listening to something, especially music being played by his dad and brother, which sprouted into his career and overall ambition.
“I initially began writing my own songs and taught myself to play the guitar, and piano in between school and studies. Over the past two years, I have self-released two well-crafted songs, written and self-produced at home.
“‘Dance Till The Sunrise’ is only a taste of what’s yet to come from me this year.”
Brink said when he listens to his own music it makes him feel a childlike joy, and it’s a feeling that he tries to keep on recreating.
“I’d love to make an album based on the atmosphere and storytelling found in the 80’s genre – bring back the good type of music the 70s and 80s gave us.”
