London R&B duo Temptress share the ethereally produced, sultry and effortlessly infectious new single ‘Cuppa Tea’.
Having already received mass acclaim for previous releases, the duo’s new single adds to their growing catalogue of gorgeous electronic-R&B-alt-pop offerings with another track of warming sonic arrangements and melodic ear-worm melodies.
Swiftly constructing a pillowy musical backdrop which fuses together lo-fi electronic elements, lucid analogue synths, delicate electronic samples, a comforting warm sub bass, and entrancing beats, ‘they ‘Cuppa Tea’ create a backdrop that exudes warmth and musical allure. Enhanced by the intertwined harmonies of their twin vocals, which glide with a sensuous, atmospheric, and wistful grace, their velvety tones and dynamic chemistry shine brightly.
Speaking about the track, Temptress exaplain: “‘Cuppa tea’ is a tongue and cheek song about early moments getting to know someone.
The sweet taste of the ‘honeymoon’ period where everything just clicks. The track references where we both grew up, playing with UK cliché’s like being someone’s ‘cuppa tea’ & hanging out at a Greasy spoon.”
Meticulously crafted and sonically intricate, ‘Cuppa Tea’ is an excellent example of how to create soulful tracks with heaps of musicality whilst also retaining a commercial appeal.
