“I was quite depressed for a year and felt incapable of socializing with others without killing the vibe. Walked around thinking, ‘Well, I’m gonna feel this bad forever, thanks a lot!’ When being in the middle of it, it was hard to see it. But in retrospect, it was sick liberating to write a sarcastic song about that time.” – Rhys explained

‘Thanks a lot now I can’t smile’ showcases Rhys’s ability to, with a twinkle in her eye, create engaging lyrics that move listeners. The emotive tune contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, “Thanks a lot now I can’t smile” possesses organic, guitar-driven instrumentation flavored with contemporary-pop and indie-punk elements. Furthermore, the song serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Rhys’s upcoming EP, set to be released early in 2022.

”I’ve always wanted to make music like the music I grew up listening to. I loved and still love Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, and Paramore. Also, I’ve always loved folk music, and I’ve been trying to find the perfect balance between the genres.” – Rhys stated

Rhys Clarstedt Frank was born in 1997 in Portland, Oregon, where she was influenced by Swedish and early 2000 American pop music. At the age of 10, she moved to Sweden, where she entered songwriter Jörgen Elofsson’s studio at the age of 19. During that time period, she released her debut album, “Stages,” which reached far beyond Sweden’s borders, accumulating over 160 million streams on Spotify alone. That success prompted many critics and fans to hail Rhys as Sweden’s next musical export.
