Tei Shi impressed last year with her debut EP, Saudade. The EP showcased her penchant for writing offbeat, almost whispery pop songs. It doesn’t always crop up in her music, but she’s a huge fan of Beyoncé, as well as Caroline Polachek of Chairlift. There are similarities to be made with the latter, but all three of them are distinctively their own artist. That’s why Tei Shi’s cover of Bey’s “No Angel” is so interesting a prospect. The execution doesn’t disappoint either, with her lending her unique and breathy flair to the Polachek-written track.
