Brooklyn’s Tei Shi is back several months after her dazzling debut EP, Saudade. Which was just about enough time for us to come to terms with her unique talent and subtly audacious lyrics. She’s just revealed a mesmerising new song, a cover of Beyoncé’s No Angel, available for free download from her Soundcloud.
Her high notes are almost whispered yet powerful and utterly soothing. Her voice truly gives us shivers. Tei Shi’s dreamy and slightly perverse indie take on RnB is some of the most beguiling music we’ve heard in a while.
If you didn’t listen to her first releases we urge you to, think Elliott Smith meets FKA Twigs.
