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.

Song of the Day: Common Sense – Teri Eloise

Just in time for Summer with a perfect mix of laid-back island vibes and emotionally laden lyrics, British Trinidadian singer/songwriter TERI ELOISE presents her third single, ‘Common Sense’ into today’s limelight.

Speaking of her latest release, which received a seal of approval by BBC introducing, Teri says: “While writing Common Sense, I was reflecting on past relationships and remembering the many instances where my love/infatuation for others blinded me to a point where I was allowing myself to be used and mistreated. This song is me taking a step back and asking myself, where’s all my common sense? Why am I allowing this?”

Accompanied by colourful and trendy filter-infused visuals which highlights Teri’s playful side, ‘Common Sense’ follows her last release, ‘Lose Myself’ backed by a feel-good beat and infectious chorus.

Teri is set to perform this breezy banger alongside her female empowering debut single ‘Blossom’ and soulfully sweet ‘Lose Myself’ today (1st August) at Camden’s Dublin Castle.
