South London Artist Roxanne Tataei Reveals New Single 'Crimson Eyes'
A play on the Jamaican patois term ‘red eye’ meaning jealousy and envy, ‘Crimson Eyes’ is the new single by South London musician Roxanne Tataei.
With trip-hop inspired production foregrounded by Roxanne’s powerful vocals she explains ‘Crimson Eyes’ is about “Unmasking true intentions, agendas and motives, lifting the veil and staring the ‘crimson eyed’ monster straight in the eye”.
‘Crimson Eyes’ is the lead track to be taken from her highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Full Moon In Aries’, released independently on 24th September, and follows her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Memoirs’ and an extensive period of touring worldwide, supporting the likes of Grace Jones and Florence & The Machine.
Roxanne’s versatility as an artist shines through in the soulful, trip-hop, psychedelic sound she crafts, inspired by artists from Outkast, Adrian Younge, Massive Attack, Gnarls Barkley to Jimi Hendrix.
Alongside visuals created DIY with the collective support of her close-knit South London community including the Hamed Maiye directed video for ‘Crimson Eyes’, Roxanne is gearing up to release her new album fully independently this year, the project funded wholly by herself – more expressive, exploratory and emancipated than ever before.
