Tallsaint returns with her new single “Model Effect”. I’ve become a huge fan of her slice of Electro-Pop since “Warm Skin” back in March, and was further impressed by her debut EP Hard Love in July. As the year comes to a close, this new track has me putting on my best boots as I prepare to strut down this runway we call LIFE.
A throwback to the 00s provides an instrumental reminiscent of the decade’s Pop landscape. Ice cold synths deliver a steely beat that bounces alongside futuristic drums to create a groove that’s rigid in execution, complimented by the distorted fuzz of bass. Tallsaint’s vocals cut through these layers with lustful lyricism, making you feel like you’re ready to own the world.
“Model Effect” is further confirmation that Tallsaint is one of my favourite discoveries of 2019. It’s another song that showcases her sound wonderfully, allowing a nostalgic foundation to excel with a modern mind-set, and right now I’m thinking about how fierce I’m gonna look sashaying down that runway.
