Tei Shi: Go Slow feat. Rome Fortune

Raised in Vancouver and Bogotá, and based in Brooklyn, Valerie Teicher aka Tei Shi is an artist with a silky voice and ethereal music to match. Her sound, what she likes to call her “mermaid music,” is-intentionally-somewhat hard to categorize, and probably best described as a fusion of indie pop, electronica, and airy ’90s R&B. Entirely on-trend, yet still enticing and distinguished.

Meet Tei Shi, an Argentina-born songstress who spent her early years moving frequently across Bogota, Vancouver and later Boston. Tei Shi is the moniker of Valerie Teicher, an artist who now calls New York City home and whose star has been rising steadily since she released her debut track “M&Ms” in the summer of 2013. The song spread like wildfire in the blog world, including Gorilla vs Bear who described the track as a “soulful, time-stretching future pop gem.” Her debut EP Saudade, was the result of a collaboration with producer Luca Buccellati and was met with much critical acclaim. Since then, Tei Shi hasn’t stopped, playing music festivals across North America as well as her own sold out dates.

Teicher has also collaborated with the UK’s rock band Glass Animals on the track “Holiest” which debuted at #1 on Hype Machine. In the spring of 2015, Tei Shi released her new EP Verde. The latest release is yet another musical step forward for the artist and includes her infectious and irresistible single “Bassically,” a “rippling nu-disco-esque jam” (V Magazine) that has leapt well over 2 million streams on Spotify after a few months. Verde is now available on Mermaid Ave/Mom+Pop in the US/Mexico, Arts & Crafts in Canada, Double Denim in the UK/EU/Japan, and Caroline in Australia/New Zealand.

Tei Shi says: “I’m a big fan of Rome and was excited to have him on the track, he’s dope. This is one of the most fun songs for me and having him on it was a cool extension of where my head was at when I made it.”

Tei Shi: Go Slow feat. Rome Fortune Lyrics:
Chorus] (x2)
Go slow
I wanna hear the floorboards squeak
And I go slow
I wanna fill the space between
If you’re giving what you’re giving to me
Feeling like a new machine
And if you’re living how you’re living for me
I wanna hear the floorboards squeak

[Bridge]
And baby won’t you reach out to me?
Baby won’t you reach out to me?

[Chorus]
Go slow
I wanna hear the floorboards squeak
And I go slow
I wanna fill the space between
If you’re giving what you’re giving to me
Feeling like a new machine
And if you’re living how you’re living for me
I wanna hear the floorboards squeak

[Bridge]
And baby won’t you reach out to me?
Baby won’t you reach out to me?

[Chorus]
Go slow
I wanna hear the floorboards squeak
And I go slow
I wanna fill the space between
If you’re giving what you’re giving to me
Feeling like a new machine
And if you’re living how you’re living for me
I wanna hear the floorboards squeak

[Bridge Overlayed]
And baby won’t you reach out to me?
Baby won’t you reach out to me?

[Outro (repeated until end)]
Oh darling
