Tei Shi – Nevermind The End
Brooklynette, Tei Shi’s (via Vancouver and Bogota) tunes have been floating around the web for a while, and apparently she rocked CMJ earlier this year. Now she’s about to drop her first EP, Saudade* out November 12.
The mix of geography in her make up is present in her sound – the cool as fuck vibe borrowed from Brooklyn, the mystery from Bogota and there’s an undeniable Canadian flavour that reminds me of both Emily Haines’ vocals and her band’s (Metric) bass lines.
And of course it makes total sense that Grimes’ brother would have directed the video for her first single, M&M.
* “Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again.”
This chick is definitely one to watch; her rise is imminent.
