Named for the various elemental twists that rain storms take — from a light inconvenient drizzle to an unequivocally torrential downpour — rising pop duo RAINNE are drenched in emotional catharsis to their core. The Los Angeles-based pair, comprised of singer-songwriter Annie Dingwall and saxophonist/engineer Justin Klunk.
Darkness is felt everywhere in RAINNE’s sonic universe. The Los Angeles based duo blend a sophisticated pop songwriting prowess (and penchant for ear worms that cut) with a late-night-drive of a West Coast mystique that recalls the introspective bops of Bishop Briggs, Dua Lipa and Lorde. The band’s uniquely horn-tinged pop sound coincides with dark beats and guitars to create shadowy torch songs that could easily soundtrack grim L.A. classics Nightcrawler, Drive, or even David Lynch’s noir masterpiece Mulholland Drive.
For the past 5 months, RAINNE has been touring across the country, from New York to Chicago to Texas to Portland, playing mostly sold out Sofar Sounds shows. Most recently, they won the Opening Act competition (out of 14,000 entrants) and performed at The Hollywood Bowl in 2019, opening for Taylor Swift, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Jonas Brothers, Camila Cabello, Marshmello and Becky G.
