“The track has a very strongly to itself, obeys in one breath, and amazing energy has to share it with its close friends. All that you love so much in modern commercial music is done at a high level! (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)”
“Трек очень сильно располагает к себе, слушается на одном дыхании, а поразительная энергетика располагает к тому, чтобы поделиться им со своими близкими друзьями. Всё, что вы так любите в современной коммерческой музыке здесь сделано на высоком уровне!”
New single "Girl, I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend" by alt pop artist Tessa Kaye for an advanced listen. The feel-good downtempo breezy alternative pop single chronicles Tessa Kaye's newly coming out process as queer and "the sheer excitement that comes with feeling free, open, being true to myself and falling in love," she confides.
Her music is a stunning mix of contemporary R&B, indie pop and electronic. She candidly profiles her battle with anxiety and difficulties growing up as a black girl in a mostly white Morman community. She has been added to Spotify's New Music Friday and been praised by the likes of One's To Watch, LADYGUNN, Earmilk and more. Thanks for your consideration,
Tessa Kaye is a Philadelphia born, Los Angeles based pop artist. Armed with vibrant individuality and a fresh approach, the effervescent artist delivers infectious pop soundscapes, with raw and relatable themes. Having grown up in Utah, Kaye struggled with the difficulties that being a black girl in a mostly white community faced. Raised in the Mormon church, she made the decision to leave once she reached early adulthood, moving to the West Coast to pursue her passion. Now, with a plethora of life experiences under her belt, Kaye wants to tell her story.
Following the successful release of her debut single “Fools Gold,” which was added to numerous Spotify editorial playlists, including New Music Friday U.S., Kaye unveils the intoxicating “You Know Who You Are and I Hate You.” An honest song narrating her lifelong struggles with severe anxiety, the songwriter gets vulnerable. She explains, “although it could be about a romantic relationship as well, I'm personally talking to my anxiety about the ways it has debilitated my life at times.” The song is a reminder that it’s perfectly ok to have days when you’re down, we’re all human and we’re allowed to be soft, feel delicate or just not ok! Kaye confides, “I've had a lot of people try to tell me that my anxiety and how much I feel is a weakness. It's taken a lot of self work for me to realize that there's a strength in allowing yourself to simply be as weak as you feel in a moment. Black women in particular are always looked at as ‘strong black women’ and while yes, that is true, there are many sides to us.”
Her release "Smile More" "speaks to the double standard of how men and women have been allowed to express themselves in society. It’s a weird, ridiculous expectation people place on women, to look pleasant 100% of the time." confides Kaye. Featuring colorful warm beats and Kaye's signature soulful vocals, "Smile" radiates with confidence.
Her single "Sunshine & Rainbows" is about the frustrations that can come with toxic positivity. Tessa confides, "so many times I’ve found myself in situations where I was trying to mask my authenticity to not come off as “negative.” I’ve swallowed my own hurt in order to keep a happy, positive disposition for others, but that shit’s dead now! Life isn’t always sunshine & rainbows…and I'd say that’s kinda the whole point. Balance baby. Contrast. Bad times just make the good ones feel that much better." "Sunshine & Rainbows" featuring sparkling vibrant synths, tropical dipped beats and an attention grabbing chorus.
Her new summer anthem "Girl, I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend" is a breezy, feel-good alternative pop single that details her courage and the process of coming out as a queer woman. She confides the track is about, "the sheer excitement that comes with feeling free, open, being true to myself and falling in love."
Having garnered close to 200,000 streams on Spotify alone, Tessa Kaye is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with.
