Song of the Day: Toxicity – Teri Eloise

Singer, songwriter and record producer, TERI ELOISE  is calling out all the emotional vampires for her latest single ‘Toxicity’, a fierce and riveting trap infused pop song that showcases a never before seen or heard side of the 22 year old artist.

The track’s distinctive sound was produced, mixed and mastered by Richard Mcclashie –  aka M.R.I. –  a fellow Caribbean producer who has worked with the likes of Post Malone, Cardi B, French Montana and Caribbean heavyweights Sean Paul, Vybz Kartel and Shenseea.

In contrast to her sweet, bright and summery single, ‘Common Sense’ which laments the idea of being blinded by infatuation, ‘Toxicity’ delves into a darker aesthetic with fiercely direct and defiant lyrics over an infectious trap beat.

Lyrically, ‘Toxicity’ embodies impeccable word play that fires up a fierce and resilient attitude, juxtaposed perfectly with her airy-toned yet commanding vocals. “Your toxicity is too persistent, and I’m just tryna keep the peace consistent” Teri chants, followed by savagely written verses which directly point out negative unhealthy traits of a toxic relationship. Teri ends the song singing “I don’t want it, get out of my way” and there is no denying that this is an anthem for anyone who is over toxic relationships and ready to fight back. Once again, the British born, Trinidadian raised songwriter shows her ability to express loaded emotional experiences in a way that is very relatable.

Since its release late last month, ‘Toxicity’ received support from the likes of BBC Introducing  as well as Dan Blakes’ set on Pulse88 Radio.

Vincent Barrea Shares Fiery Video For Single, ‘Chemical or Love’

Moscow-based vocalist, producer and rapper VINCENT BARREA has dropped some blazing visuals for his new single ‘Chemical or Love’, premiered on VENTS Magazine. The three-minute production is tipped to follow suit Barrea’s success with his previous outputs, ‘Zoom Zoom’, which has racked up over 800K Youtube views; ‘Save My Life’ and ‘I’m Not Afraid’ racked up well over 400K views.

Mixed and mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Alex Evans (Skrillex, Rag N Bone Man, Basement Jaxx), ‘Chemical or Love’ is based on the uncertainties experienced during the beginning stages of a new relationship. The track opens with an upbeat piano intro and a cuban-style sound palette before Vincent’s vocals slide into the first suave stanza. Forward thinking beats blended with retro instrumentals and an urbane approach to songwriting, make ‘Chemical or Love’ catchy and compelling.

Speaking of the track, Barrea comments: “This song is a musical transformation of the experiences of a real person. A person who is so strongly in love that he cannot determine whether it is just chemistry occurring in his head, or a very persistent feeling from the bottom of his heart. These thoughts annoy and create doubt and anxiety, and don’t give the opportunity to move further in the relationship – thereby spiraling it to a dead end.”

Song of the Day: Soul Ties – Carmen Marie

CARMEN MARIE is one of those genre defying singer/songwriters whose signature sound is uniquely their own. Hailing from Streatham, South East London, CARMEN MARIE has an emotive honesty and rawness the like of which is truly rare and certainly distinguishes her as an artist set to breakthrough in the UK and internationally.

Heavily drawing influence from RnB, Jazz and Neo Soul, Carmen’s vocals and unique curation of ‘melodic alternative slow jams’ give this ever-evolving singer a certain ambiguity, beyond that of a conventional artist.

After the success of her debut single ‘Hopeless’ in 2018, Carmen has racked up 70k+ combined streams to date. Having found herself on various Spotify playlists, the first single from her forthcoming EP ‘High Day,’ received much the same response. Her latest effort, the title track from the EP ‘Soul Ties’  deals with the depth and dangers of relationships tapping in, once again, to her uniquely personal melodic genius.
