Tessa released new music last summer to much acclaim, but something wasn’t right- the songs didn’t feel like her so she took a beat and went back to work. She’s finally ready to share records that truly feel like her. After some introspection, and a lot of exploring, she set up a studio in her living room and wrote until music finally felt like home again. “I went through a period of time where I definitely took on the tortured artist persona. It was hard. A lot of sessions ended with me feeling lost and hopeless, or in a daze from smoking too much weed trying to find the ‘muse’. And then something clicked. I picked up a guitar, I opened Logic on my laptop. The process became fun again.”
Pop is more sonically porous than ever, and Tessa Rae is its latest, greatest genre-blending alchemist, striking aural gold with her uncanny merging of the dark, shadowy pop favored by Lana Del Rey and Mazzy Star, but with her own incredibly distinctive twist.
