Following a week of incredible performances and praise from critics and fans alike at Austin's SXSW festival, Tei Shi has debuted "Justify" off of her highly anticipated debut album Crawl Space, which is out March 31st on Downtown/Interscope Records.
Valerie Teicher aka Tei Shi noted, "Justify is a kind of protest song against the way in which we are categorized or judged by others based off of very superficial or one dimensional standards. It came from a place of rebellion against the insecurities and pressures that come into play when you put yourself in a position to be defined by another. For me the song is a challenge against that musically and emotionally."
Tei Shi is wrapping up a tour with MØ and has also announced another round of tour dates this Spring, headlining shows in NYC, Boston and DC. Tickets are on sale now and a full rundown can be found below.
The pre-order for Crawl Space now available.
"Tei Shi's vibrant music video for "Keep Running"... is a hypnotic visual expression of the dynamic track." Billboard
"Prepare your roommates for the impromptu karaoke sessions you'll be having to this song all year long." Cosmopolitan, 25 Albums to Obsess Over in 2017
"Tei Shi may have been a long time coming, but "Keep Running" feels like the debut of an artist properly establishing her musical identity with plenty of potential for success." V Magazine
""Keep Running," a silky slip of R&B pop, a little Jesse Ware, a little Solange. The video, directed by Agostina Gálvez, which you can watch below, features the Colombian-born singer back to brunette, in various satiny numbers, curving her body with the sensual ease with which she delivers her melodies." Noisey
"Tei Shi's acrobatic vocals shine once again on "How Far,"... The track - which pairs gut-wrenching lyrics like "If it pleases you to see me struggle/ I will" with dreamy guitars and buzzing production - explores the thin line between love and destruction. And it'll stick with you."FADER
Fluttering above light, synth-driven production, the singer's sunny vocals shine, asserting herself as both a prolific producer and acrobatic vocalist."
