Songs of the Day: Blue Hounds – Ren

Following the release of his debut EP, ‘A Calling From The Shore’ which generated over 650K streams on spotify, REN returns with a mellow piece entitled ‘Blue Hounds.’

Written and recorded in Newcastle, ‘Blue Hounds’ takes careful aim at the dogs let slip by a savage Tory agenda from Theresa May’s 2017 Tory manifesto to current EU negotiations.

Speaking of his latest effort, REN says: “With this song, I wanted to make people more aware of and engaged in current affairs. It’s a call for people to take a stand against policies that infringe on our rights.”

EP Review: A Calling From The Shore – Ren

ren

Following the release of his soul-warming offerings, including ‘The Coast’ – featured last September on NEW LEASE MUSIC – singer/songwriter REN releases his five-track EP, ‘A Calling From The Shore’ today.

Continuing the theme from the ‘The Coast’, the sincere and heart-tugging  presence of the acoustic guitar, with elements of contemporary pop, steals the limelight in the latest project. The lovable rogue adds that magical touch through his delicate and Celtic-esque delivery.

Definitely a winning formula – take time out and have a listen.

Upcoming Release: The Coast – Ren

After the success of his debut single, My Heart Belongs To Ireland singer-songwriter REN, releases his second single The Coast on October 7 .

Delightfully boasting a soul-warming folksy sensation, the three-and-a-half production documents the Newcastle tinker’s trip around Europe.

Speaking of his big adventure, he said: ” To get the funds together, I converted my van into a camper van and lived in it in London whilst working a 9-5. I used to turn up to work every morning in running shorts and pretend that I had run into work just so I could use the office showers!

I started my trip by getting the ferry to Norway from England with my van and from there I drove through Scandinavia, central Europe and a bit of Eastern Europe. I ended up living in the North of Holland for a little while before I moved to France for 5 months.”

If you’re in the Newcastle area on the 1st Oct, drop by Alphabetti Theatre for his single launch…but for now, sample have a listen.
