tendai Emerges From New Creative Space With Intimate "I Deserve It,"

April 12, 2024

East London singer/songwriter tendai has been teasing new music on his socials recently, and we've finally been given access to what he's been working on.

"I Deserve It," (including the comma) is a brief yet immersive drop that tugs at the heartstrings. tendai's punchily delivered lyrics feel like diary entries as he details a romance gone wrong, lamenting that he deserves more.

"I Deserve It," is the product of The Raido Room, the new studio space tendai converted from a warehouse. This is the first offering from that space and the first from an upcoming project.

Speaking on the project and the creative process, tendai shares: "I wanted to go to the warehouse because I wanted how the music was feeling to me to be reflected in the space it was being created. The industrial sounds, the sparse production, the space in the writing, and in the vocal delivery. Everything about the music to me was screaming SPACE, so when the time came to find somewhere to finish it, the warehouse just made sense.

"This project is generally about my first heartbreak and how I was affected by a love lost. The rain is the beginning of my journey into self; searching inward for musical references and inspirations that I have always had but ignored. This project is the start of my journey home."

While we wait to see what's next, hit play below.
