⭐️ PREMIERE ⭐️ | Rann | "Renegade Holiday"

The Brooklyn-based indie-pop act is preparing for their EP next week, but first comes their second single. The track is sexy and intense, emblematic of Cigarettes After Sex and The 1975 with the pop breeding of a power band like Phoenix. It may have taken the guys three years to follow-up on their 2015 LP, Yellowgun, but "Renegade Holiday" shows that good things are worth waiting for.
