RENFORSHORT SHARES CAPTIVATING NEW SONG “MADE FOR YOU” OUT NOW
MARCH 31 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – Today 19-year-old alt-pop artist renforshort premieres “made for you,” a deceptively sweet bop driven by bright handclaps and effervescent melodies. Released via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada/, “made for you” is available now at all digital retailers HERE. Watch the visualizer for “made for you” HERE.
Says renforshort, “’made for you’ is about changing your entire personality to fit another person’s standards, which is something a lot of women have to struggle with in a society where we’re expected to look and act a particular way.”
Produced by Afterhrs and John Ryan, “made for you” follows the January release of “moshpit,” the first new piece of music from ren since her critically lauded 2021 EP off saint dominique — a June release that drew acclaim from the likes of NME, who hailed her as a “pop-rock riser…unafraid to speak her mind.” The six-track project features standouts like “fall apart”: a bombastic pop-punk anthem that earned ren her first production credit and amassed over a million global streams in under two weeks. Soon after putting out the EP, ren joined Yungblud on his fall UK tour.
renforshort will hit the road again this spring joining Tai Verdes on his North American tour followed by a run of dates with The Band Camino and stops at festivals including Firefly, Hangout Fest, and Splendour In The Grass.

Casting an alternative haze over pop, renforshort conjures emotionally charged anthems punctuated by her intimate delivery and unfiltered lyricism. Born and raised in Toronto, she initially gravitated towards influences as diverse as Nirvana and Amy Winehouse, learning how to sing and write songs. During high school, the 19-year-old artist quietly honed her craft with countless performances in local bars in between dropping original tunes online. Her 2020 debut EP, teenage angst, lived up to its title as it bottled coming-of-age confusion and catharsis into chantable anthems with no shortage of punk spirit. The single “fuck, i luv my friends” reacted with over 11 million Spotify streams, paving the way for her off saint dominique EP in 2021. Along the way, iconic Linkin Park co-founder and co-vocalist Mike Shinoda jumped at the chance to collaborate, while YUNGBLUD, Avril Lavigne, MGK and others invited her to share the stage with them. She ignited 2022 with the single “moshpit” as it arrived to widespread acclaim from Billboard, Teen Vogue, OnesToWatch, NME, and more as EUPHORIA. proclaimed, “the songstress is reinventing traditional pop music as we know it.” Now, renforshort’s unbreakable and undeniable spell will only grow stronger on her forthcoming full-length debut for Interscope Records.
