Rebecka Reinhard turns a bad memory into motivation on ‘A Pick’ – Vanyaland

The universe sometimes has a cruel way of reminding us of our past. But the human spirit usually finds a way to not only cope, but ultimately prevail.

For Rebecka Reinhard who we last caught up with in late June over her excellent single No Release it was a simple guitar pick found randomly on the street that carried a billboard-sized reminder. That pick, and the name is displayed, triggered an unwanted memory; but it also served as a cathartic catalyst for her new single, the appropriately titled A Pick.

So I found this pick. A guitar pick, Reinhard says. It was lying on the ground, face down and I obviously went to pick it up and when I flipped it over it had my exs name on it, in big black letters, just staring at me like a bad joke. I was still kind of in the process of getting over this person but instead of throwing the pick away I pocketed it and went home and wrote a song about it.

Reinhard adds: Being a true Pisces, shredding the pick until it was all worn down and the name had started fading, I felt like that was the most vengeance I would get. And I felt pretty OK with that. A Pick encapsulates that feeling I often get, of not getting things done the right way or being able to make sense of an overwhelming reality but faking it the best I can, hoping no one will notice.

Much like No Release, this new track will be featured on Reinhards new EP, Whale, due out August 21 via Crowds And Power. Listen to A Pick below.
