Rina Sawayama mocks capitalism with her new single, 'XS'

Rina Sawayama has shared her new single, 'XS'.

The follow-up to 'Comme Des Garçons (Like The Boys)', it's the latest cut from her upcoming debut album 'Sawayama', due 17th April via Dirty Hit.

"‘XS’ is a song that mocks capitalism in a sinking world," she explains. "Given that we all know global climate change is accelerating and human extinction is a very real possibility within our lifetime it seemed hilarious to me that brands were still coming out with new makeup palettes every month and public figures were doing a gigantic house tour of their gated property in Calabasas in the same week as doing a 'sad about Australian wild fires' Instagram post.

"I mean I'm guilty of turning a blind eye too, because otherwise it makes me depressed. We're all hypocrites because we are all capitalists, and it's a trap that I don't see us getting out of. I wanted to reflect the chaos of this post-truth climate change denying world in the metal guitar stabs that flare up like an underlying zit between the 2000s R&B beat that reminds you of a time when everything was alright."

Check out 'XS' below, and catch Rina on tour in the UK this May.
