Tei Shi, aka songwriter Valerie Teicher, was born in Argentina and spent time in Bogota, Vancouver, and Boston before laying roots in New York. Musically, Tei Shi comes from a place somewhere between shoegaze and dance music, with swirling layers of airy vocals floating on electronic loops and production. On her first release, dark, mellow melodies ruled, but newer material sees Tei Shi pushing things in a more assertive, bass-and-beat heavy direction.

Featured song: “Bassically”
