TOTEM – Shadows

Following up his recent collaboration with Aalias, Bubblegum, NYC-via-Atlanta singer/songwriter and alternative R&B artist TOTEM has just unveiled a new sick track called Shadows. The song opens around sparse piano laden chords and TOTEM’s insane raw singing, which are soon joined by a bright, flawless electronic production that contributes to highlight the amazing vocal skills of the Atlanta-raised artist.

Speaking on the track to The Fader, TOTEM said: “‘Shadows’ was the first idea I worked with Teal [Douville, record producer]. I think the meaning behind it really had to do with being [in L.A.], and thinking about how the music industry tends to be a very judge-y and fickle place. People hate you ’til they love you, but you’re the only one that has to deal with the shit along the way.
