Tsar B – Escalate

A whole spectrum of colours appears when I listen to music. If I could place my music somewhere in there, it would approach the darker side. It’s a bit like the colour of what I think a space oddyssey would look like.

You could probably figure out how Tsar B‘s debut single Escalate sounds through these meaningful words she said to The Fader, which premiered the song today. The seesaw of limping R&B beats, exotic instrumentals and flickering artful effects, melted with the voluptuous vocals dropped by the Belgian songstress, have made this track a stunning introduction to this awesome newcomer. Indeed, Escalate would have been the perfect output if FKA Twigs and TĀLĀ were merged in a single body and released a song in that form.
