Leading single “Love Games” is reminiscent of The Weeknd meets Banks and features a mosaic of synths, gliding atop funky melodies, confident bass lines, and punchy percussion. While Renaldo's latest "Trainwreck" is pure sad chill garage rock with pop-infused melodies. "Trainwreck" details Renaldo's own issues with panic disorder and how society can often prioritize success over happiness. The release is further important to her as it "holds space in a genre that typically isn't occupied by black artists". Renaldo further confides, "If black artists are being represented, we’re typically pushed into hip hop & R&B categories… not as much rock, indie, or alternative."

NOHEARTBREAK2020 is inspired by artists ranging from the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Hayley Williams to Post Malone and SZA. Also pulling influence from producers including Timbaland, Pharrell, and Greg Kurstin, Lani shows us an insight into her love of the ’80s, with the EP emanating big drums and distorted guitars along with a vocoder.
Lani Renaldo has seen success performing with the likes of Alessia Cara at the AMA’s and opening for Halsey at The Shrine. Her collaboration on “Malibu” with Matt Dimona topped Spotify’s Global 50 chart and currently has over six million streams. Constantly trying to evolve and understand her emotions, Lani uses music to be the outlet in which she expresses her discoveries, concluding “Do what you love, fuck the rest. If it doesn’t serve you, cut it out. Sometimes your truth will not match someone else and that’s ok. Misery isn’t worth the money. Follow your dreams.”
