Synth-pop singer Tei Shi says ‘Goodbye’




We are only six months into 2020 and it is proving to be one of the most disruptive, transformative years of many people’s lifetime. Colombian-Canadian artist ​Tei Shi ​met the year with a fresh perspective as she re-emerged into the music landscape with newfound independence and reinvigorated drive for authentic creative expression. Eerily, her first release of the year, ​Die 4 Ur Love,​ somewhat foreshadowed the feeling of isolation while also providing a bit of relief with its upbeat and playful vibe. The song received praise from ​Billboard, Stereogum, Pop Justice, The Line Of Best Fit, and more; while also grabbing playlists across Amazon, Apple Music, Spotify​, and​ TIDAL​.

Having hit a high note with her first track of 2020, Tei Shi continues to impress with her latest offering ‘Goodbye’​.The song is the second off her upcoming ​Die 4 Ur Love EP due out July 17th and continues showcasing her artistic evolution and dynamic songwriting. Sonically the track stays true to the 80’s-influenced alternative-pop sound Tei Shi has become celebrated for, while propelling her further into the mainstream arena.

Driven by a hypnotic synth arrangement that pulsates as her gentle vocals cascade effortlessly over the retro-futuristic production, the song is Tei Shi’s proclamation of letting go of what is no longer serving her. She shares, ​’Goodbye’ is really just a farewell song. It's me waving goodbye to some different relationships that ended throughout the last couple of years. It's not about one single person, but I'm singing to a few different people - from business related to personal. Obviously, you can tell how I feel about it listening to the song... it's kind of a fuck you. I wrote it at the start of a writing trip on a Texas ranch, and it really just felt like something I had to get out of my system while I continued writing the EP. It was an overdue song for me, I had to say the goodbyes in order to start this new phase.”
