Rina Sawayama signs to Dirty Hit, releases stellar STFU! video

Rina Sawayama has announced her arrival at Dirty Hit with an explosive video for new track ‘STFU!’.

The clip commences with a 1:40 minute sketch, in which Rina appears to be on a date with a man who repeatedly demonstrates racial ignorance and moronic insights. Rina, who is of Japanese descent, loses her shit. She attacks the antagonist in unison with the introduction of a heavy guitar riff – not traditional Dirty Hit, indie heavy – but Scuzz-heavy.

The track itself is indebted to a plethora of unmistakable early 2000’s influences, from Evanescence to nu-metal and chart-topping pop queens. STFU! is an insanely ballsy statement from Rina and Dirty Hit alike and could be the start of a very, very exciting partnership.

The words Shut The Fuck Up have never sounded so catchy.
