The newcomer is already making a serious impact.
I remember three months back when we first introduced REI AMI with her song “MAKE IT MINE.” I dove head first into her insanity and compared her to a more unhinged Billie Eilish. Well, three months later, it seems Billie, and a whole lot of other people, are on board with the REI AMI way. The Maryland-based musician shared her new song, “DICTATOR,” today. It’s just her third release following “MAKE IT MINE” and September’s “SNOWCONE” and she’s already receiving placement at the top of Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, ironically solidifying her takeover with a song named for a tyrant. The song shows off a more rock-focused side of REI that, when paired with her all-red album cover, perfectly conveys her angst before a word is even spoken. But, like her previous releases, the song cuts out halfway through to deliver a chill, indie-pop jam that needs to be heard to truly understood. You can find “DICTATOR” from REI AMI on our Tasty! Jams playlists.
