“Music is my alchemy”
"Posner’s music feels like cutting glass with a diamond"
“Tess mixes elements of electropop and industrial to create a darkly sexy song. Posner flexes her vocal range from a low growl to a lilting falsetto on the track she describes as “a love letter to death.”
“Tess’s voice is delightfully haunting. Her tone conveys an emotional depth we don’t often seen in this genre of music. This song is an example of how pop music can break out of the constraints of superficiality when it wants to.”
