Tina Says gives us the clearest indication of her immense talent yet on new single, Spin
Her fourth single is far-and-away her strongest yet, and ups the game for a stacked summer.
It might have taken four singles (and some cool remixes) to get there, but as we head towards the end of 2018 it feels like we're finally seeing the real Tina Says. A fixture on the local club scene for the past couple of years, her three previous original singles have played in a few different sandboxes sonically, all the while keeping us at arm's length in terms of who she really is. However, we feel pretty comfortable in saying that her new single, Spin, finds the real Tina Says standing up, and it's an exciting evolution.
"At the time I wrote the track, I was over-thinking everything. I'd worked myself up into a total head-spin brought on by constantly comparing myself to others on social media. I'm sure everyone can relate to that feeling of going down the vortex of unproductive thinking," she says. "The track was my remedy to that; a chance to create something laid-back and light that alleviated those pressures for me; I hope when people listen to Spin they'll see the good, amongst the darkness, too, and be reminded to enjoy life, and dance."
In the process of letting go, it would appear Tina Says has finally found a sound that feels like her - Spin is definitely more upbeat-feeling than previous works, but still maintains some darker, bass-driven elements that don't necessarily dictate where the track goes, but rather compliment it. This is boogie-ready summer fodder, begging for a sun-drenched dancefloor, spritz in hand, not a care in the world. Take a listen below and do exactly those things at one of a few shows she has coming up - listed down the bottom.
