Tinashe’s “Flame” Sounds Like A Moody Electro-Anthem
Tinashe shared a snippet of her new single on Instagram and “Flame” sounds like a moody electro-anthem. “Cold in the night when I hold you close,” she sings over a sparse, eerie beat. “Searching your eyes, but you’re gone like a ghost.” It doesn’t give too much away, but this would sound amazing with a demented drop like Marian Hill’s “Down” or Kiiara’s “Gold.” We’ll know soon enough how producers Stargate and BloodPop approached the song. Tee’s latest arrives on Friday (March 17).
The video also debuts that day. The 24-year-old shared two previews of the clip and it looks fairly solemn. In one snippet, she opens a matchbox. In another, she lights a candle at an alter of sorts. The song is apparently about the end of a relationship, which would make sense with this set-up. “Flame” is the first official single from Tinashe’s long-overdue sophomore LP, Joyride.
