TEA - Syrup

8/26/2015 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments


It took me a long time to figure out whether this girl's name was Tea or Syrup. lol. #indieproblems. But when I finally did, my world became brighter, because Tea rules you guys. "Syrup" is a floaty electronic pop slice. I want to eat it, and not just because the title forces me to think of pancakes and bacon. The vocals are beautiful. I feel like I'm on a cloud within the first 30 seconds. The best part though, is the fact this song can serve as a companion piece to Shaggy's "It Wasn't Me." Don't be fooled by the delicate delivery, Tea is singing about straight up filth in this song. Take for example, the lyrics: "Heard a scream out / then I run run run run / Saw you fucking that girl next door / spread eagle on the kitchen floor...you said you loved me / but you lied" Immediately I thought, omg Tea is Shaggy's wronged girlfriend from the year 2000. Don't believe me? EXHIBIT A (in case if by some freak occurrence you've forgotten the lyrics) : "Honey came in and she caught me red-handed / Creepin with the girl next door / Picture this we were both butt naked / Banging on the bathroom  kitchen floor." Yeah. Coincidence? I THINK NOT.
