about

Reinabe is a Vietnamese-Japanese vocalist and producer based in Los Angeles.

The emphasis of their music is localized in the world of experimental electronic music and performance art, both of which integrate personal research on post-internet culture, ethnic and cultural orientation, and questions of identity.

"In The Object" is Reinabe's debut single on ZOOM LENS.

The song details an impulsive night spent cutting off their hair, an action which led them towards discovering their identity and understanding the gendered programming of their existence as a Vietnamese-Japanese person.

The process, described as "reintegrating uncovered traumas," became a subconscious dealing of pouring out the truths of their identity yet to be realized at the time.

The video for "In The Object" was created with longtime collaborator and filmmaker Asuka Lin.

Track Name: In The Object
i’m lilac and i’m daisy chained
i’m christening and wide awake
i’m hungry and i can survive
i’m in the object in the likes

i wonder bodies that i need
of arms to keep to sow the knees
i’m taking back the sacrament
the packs of smokes i want to have

i branch each peril from my space
i’m sturdy sentiment i keep
the dialect that comes from there
from spheres to move beside the bed

i’m in my hair i’m in my hair
i leave my body from my hair
i’m taking back the sacrament
the packs of smokes i want to have

i sleep, i sleep
when the dawning reaps, dawning reaps
the sacrament, i keep it
when the dawning reaps, dawning reaps

a reddened blossom tints my face
to seize each breath i did not take
it’s heightened in the guise of who
the rosewater i seep into

i fill the brim until i leak
unbind the cross that kept me, free
i cannot and i never will
that fragrance i’m in love with still

i’m in my hair, i’m in my hair
i leave my body from my hair
i’m taking back the sacrament
the packs of smokes i want to have

i sleep, i sleep
when the dawning reaps, dawning reaps
the sacrament, i keep it
when the dawning reaps, dawning reaps
