Tea Sea has returned with latest single ‘Vitals’, a RnB track full of melody, carefully crafted lyrics and polished production. The Odenton, MD based artist has a history in spoken word poetry, and this is abundantly clear upon hearing his thought provoking, intimate lyrics. Unafraid to show vulnerability, Tea Sea agonizingly details his emotions of a mixture of joy and a lack of comfort that falling in love brings.
The single begins with soft, indie inspired guitars that slowly bring the listener into the song, as the production becomes more and more intense in sync with the lyrical content. Energy is a key highlight of ‘Vitals’ and it is an essential part of what makes the song so successful. This is clear when you consider the influences on the track too, varying from Kid Cudi to Lil Wayne all the way to anime and manga, all of which use energy to substantiate their point.
‘Vitals’ is a crucial song for 2021, showing Tea Sea going from strength to strength as he continues his journey in creating his debut LP.
