Tei Shi Premieres Video For “Say You Do,” On Tour Now!

TEI SHI PREMIERES NEW VIDEO FOR “SAY YOU DO” ON NPR’S FIRST WATCH ON HEADLINE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR NOW
Tei Shi is in the midst of her massive North American fall tour and to celebrate the run of shows, Tei Shi has dropped her new video for “Say You Do.”

NPR premiered it as a First Watch, describing the video saying, “The clip follows Teicher riding around in a neon-lit limousine as manifestations of her various personas dance beside her, pushing up against the walls of the car and climbing over each other in crowded chaos. Bell says the limo represents an alternate reality in which she’s removed from the pressures of modern life.”

The video’s directors, Bradly Bell & Pablo Jones-Soler, took some time to chat with NPR about the video. Bell spoke on the limo in the video, saying it “represents an alternate reality in which she’s removed from the pressures of modern life. “It’s a safe space where things can be complicated,” Bell says. “Inside, she’s allowed to explore all the different sides of her childhood, her influences, her art, and really blossom.”

Tei Shi describes the video to NPR in her own words saying, “There’s this idea that if you change, or evolve, or dare to be complicated, you’re in authentic, but I’m a chameleon, I’m always evolving,” she said. “There’s power in saying, ‘I have many versions of myself and I can tap into whatever I want.'”

2017 has been a huge year for the artist, debuting Crawl Space to critical acclaim, touring the world and receiving rave reviews for her fresh and dynamic take on pop music. All tour dates are listed below.

Crawl Space is out now on Downtown Records.

“The spindly compositions that Valerie Teicher records as Tei Shi are fierce in their modesty, making spare use of whispered high notes and loud screams.”   

The New Yorker

“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

“Swooning synth-pop and the latter’s psychedelic soul” Stereogum

“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’s debut full-length record is a self-excavation, an unearthing of former identities in the hope of transforming her current one.” – Interview Magazine

“‘Crawl Space’ draws the focus in on Tei Shi’s compelling and sultry vocals like never before” Clash Magazine

“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

“”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

“Fluttering above light, synth-driven production, the singer’s sunny vocals shine, asserting herself as both a prolific producer and acrobatic vocalist.” Out Magazine, Women In Power-Pop: 50 Musicians Taking Over

“Teicher’s breathy soprano vocals steal the show; Aaliyah-like, they’re the strongest instrument on the album.”
