Tei Shi Teases New Album With Intricate New Release ‘How Far’

Written by Jack Andrew Cribb

Buenos Aires-born, New York-based singer-songwriter Tei Shi has just released a new single from her anticipated debut album, Crawl Space.

The track, How Far, is a subtly-crooned, downbeat, almost neo-soul number. It talks of the changes that come in a relationship from both partners, and the dangers that come from them.

How Far talks about the process of attempting to change one another in a relationship, and the final desperate point — the last attempt — before acceptance”, Tei Shi explains.

How Far is carried by a single melody that continues throughout the piece, coming from guitars and then from organ-like electronics. The chorus mixes Tei Shi’s rasping, sultry voice with a buzzing bassline. The layering of the track is wonderful, combining multiple electronic pieces with jazzy sonics. It’s the newest example of Tei Shi’s growing talent and mastery of intricate songcraft, a talent we’ve seen in previous releases; 2013’s Saudade and 2015’s Verde.

Crawl Space is set to be released on March 31st. To get the vibe, check out How Far below.
