Kimbra w/ Special Guest Tei Shi

Summing up the last few years feels next to impossible, other than to say that we have all experienced a reckoning: around the environment, health, race, feminism, patriarchal systems, and endless other areas of daily life. Kimbra has gone through her own series of reckonings — both on a macro and micro scale — since the release of her third album, 2018’s Primal Heart. Today, the New Zealand-born experimental pop performer and two-time Grammy award winner has turned a corner, both personally and professionally. Kimbra channels all of this into her forthcoming fourth studio album, A Reckoning. Over the course of 10 tracks, exclusively co-produced by Son Lux’s Ryan Lott, Kimbra world-builds a space of sonic grandeur while simultaneously mining the depths of her life and the myriad events catalyzing change on a global scale.

Tei Shi (pronounced “tay-shee”) is the moniker of singer/songwriter and producer Valerie Teicher. Growing up between Bogotá, Colombia and Vancouver, Canada, Tei Shi is heavily influenced by her ever changing environment and cross-cultural identity.

Since her first two EPs, Saudade (2013) and Verde (2015) “introduced her to the world as a skilled and fluid vocalist… [Tei Shi] has fully stepped into her own, brewing up confections centered on trusting your own intuition.” (Pitchfork). Her groundbreaking song Bassically garnered over 17 million streams on Spotify alone and set the scene for her critically acclaimed debut album Crawl Space (2017), which was highly revered by the likes of NPR, The New Yorker, Pitchfork, The Fader and The Guardian, and projected her as one of today’s most influential multidisciplinary acts.

Her new single, GRIP, marks the beginning of a new chapter for Tei Shi as a truly independent artist, fully in control of her sound, creative direction, and business. The song discusses the disappointment and anger brought about by some of her experiences in the music industry, and paves the way for a breadth of new material set to be released throughout 2022.
