From the moment she emerged, Tei Shi (aka Valerie Teicher) has established herself as the latest in a line of uncompromising female artists. Her hypnotic brand of deconstructed pop has enchanted fans worldwide, while her bold and innovative fashion sense has drawn plaudits from style publications and Instagram followers alike. After breaking onto the scene with 2013’s Saudade EP, Tei Shi scored a bona fide hit a year later with “Bassically”, which racked up over 12 million streams across streaming platforms and YouTube. Now she’s preparing to release Crawl Space, her astounding and emotional debut album, due out March 31 via Arts & Crafts.
“Keep Running” is the first single from the album, and is out now. The sumptuous video, directed by Agostina Gálvez, which premiered today courtesy of Billboard, who called the video a “hypnotic visual expression”, shows off a sultrier side to Tei Shi unseen in her previous visuals.
