Tei Shi will release her highly anticipated debut album Crawl Space on Downtown / Interscope Records on March 31stToday, she debuts the video for "How Far," the second single released from Crawl Space. The video premiered via Dazed, who noted, "the greatest gift of Tei Shi, born Valerie Teicher, might be her natural ability to transmute personal stories into sticky pop hooks." Tei Shi has also announced that in addition to her tour with MØ this month and SXSW dates, you can catch her on tour this spring, headlining shows in NYC, Boston and DC. Tickets go on sale today at 12PM EST


"How Far" was directed by Brooklyn production studio DREAMTIGER, who commented on the video, saying, "Relationships often feel like getting hit by car.  It's about a relentless force always following you, always dragging you back, and sometimes you don't know whether you can survive." Dreamtiger also said that the video was "secretly inspired by "Z", a film by Costa-Gavras and an unreleased Kanye music video by Steve McQueen."

The FADER premiered the single, calling it a "sultry power ballad" and writing "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."

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

"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
