Exploring the dark pop sound of Makena's latest single "Rinse & Repeat"

On October 31, 2023, Makena released her latest single “Rinse & Repeat”. The track starts with a dark synth sound, giving the overall vibe of a dark pop sound with heavy electronic elements.

The song slowly starts to build with a super catchy pre chorus, with lyrics like ‘Yeah I know where you go for hours, sitting in the shower, Cause of what you did, You hate that I’m still on your skin, Even when you’re with her, Know you reminisce’ automatically drawing the listeners a story from beginning to end. You can only infer that the song is about an ex and how quickly they go from relationship to relationship, not caring about their significant others and leaving them in pieces. The ending of the track leaves a lasting impression, with the indication that she is glad the relationship ended and that he will never be able to forget her and “rinse” her out of his memories. Overall the song was one that I really enjoyed, I would recommend it to those who are fans of Tove Lo and FLETCHER.

The singer-songwriter hails from Denver, CO and currently resides in Los Angeles, CA. “Rinse & Repeat” marks the fifth single released from Makena in 2023 alone. The single was co-written alongside Brooke Daye and produced by Alex Strahle. The young pop artist has been releasing music since 2019 with the release of single “Fuqboi Worktape” and has been slowly making her way into the pop scene with over 17K monthly listeners on Spotify. I for one cannot wait to see what she does next and how her sound evolves.
