SINGLE REVIEW: Rence – Track Shoes 

Rising pop singer-songwriter and producer Rence has dropped another banger that will have you gliding into the weekend with a bit of a bounce in your step. Continuing his evolution as an artist that you should get acquainted with, ‘Track Shoes’ is a playful pop representation of heartbreak. 

Taking a different angle over what most would expect, this track reflects on the level of care and love you still have for someone following the separation. Just because you’ve broken up it doesn’t mean that the feelings you have grown for someone just disappears completely. So when you hear that they’re struggling in this next chapter, you still wanna be there and let them know that you still think about them and are always there to be a shoulder to lean on. “Next time you thinkthat your powers are gonecause somebody said that you’re not what they want, just remember you saved mebefore we moved on” he honestly sings. It’s a moment of reassurance that sometimes we do just need because a break-up can feel like a full erasure from a significant time in your life, and that’s quite daunting. “And you’re still in my head like my favorite song” and “I spent days and nights thinking bout you. You ran round my mind in your nike track shoes. You left scars on my skin. I call them tattoos when anyone asks me about you” are some beautiful lines that perfectly nurture that sentiment. 

Contrasting that vulnerable and nurturing lyrical concept with slick 80’s influenced synths, Rence has produced up this track with Mike Robinson to give a euphoric layering. It’s designed to have you immediately dancing and celebrate the people that come into our lives to help us grow, and remember that we also impact their lives too. It’s infectiously crafted and will be stuck in your head after the very first listen. So get ready to become obsessed!
