Teddi Gold grew up on an island, owns a dazzling pink bodysuit she wears with white knee-high boots, and introduces her new single, "Figure It Out," today on Popdust.
Describing the song, Gold says, "'Figure It Out' is my reflection on walking away from a toxic relationship. The pain of letting someone go, but also the celebration of finding your self-worth."
Frequently likened to artists like Holy Child, Charlie XCX, and Lily Allen, she was born in Seattle but moved to the Virgin Islands when she was nine-years-old. Later, Gold and her dad and his boyfriend moved to L.A. Like one of her major influences, Patti Smith, Gold finally found her medium in music after she tried acting, poetry, and photography.
She burst onto the music scene with her debut single, "Video Games," a song about romance in a world dominated by video games, which hit Fresh Finds on both Spotify and Poptronix.
"Figure It Out" opens with swirling synths flowing into a buoyant pop melody with a contagious rhythm topped by Gold's unique voice. Gang vocals infuse the tune with vibrant colors.
A soft breakdown shifts the harmonics to dreamy savors and then ramps into lightly filtered vocals: "I've got time to save myself / Nobody else / Nobody else."
"Figure It Out" flaunts Teddi Gold's delightful knack for experimenting and blending various pop tangs into a heady concoction.
