Teresa Jenee - Electric YellowMonday, December 10, 2012
She describes her music as “soulful, introspective, and refreshing,” and Electric Yellow fits that bill as an eclectic mix of jazz, R&B, electronica, and old school hip-hop. Poetic and lyrical in all aspects, the set begins with “Caviar Dreams” where she lists her goals, then introduces herself in the head-bobbing “Hi America.” The soothing and romantic “Cleopatra Love & War” precedes the jazz stylings of “Ode to October.” The musician then covers the gem “Kissing You,” originally by Des'ree. “Romeo + Juliet” takes the love story to a dance floor in 1985, and “Tahitian Vanilla” finds you vibing to her flow; it’s so chill as the song’s crisp chords ride out. Promises of a return grace the slow jam “Eroplane, and she flows on “Timber,” warning of the falling of a relationship.
