Tessa Violet is one of those artists who just exploded onto the scene when she unleashed her debut single to the world all those years ago, now she’s helping to bring up the next generation of underrated icons in the form of the Vancouver based trio Daysormay. After touring together and Violet being so impressed that she got the trio signed to her label T∆G Music the two artists collaborated on their stellar new single Role Model. Safe to say it’s a pop anthem that I’ll be singing out loud on car trips for weeks to come.
Best way of describing this track is that it’s like someone took the grandeur that was involved in the 80’s pop music and combined it with the flair of Imagine Dragon’s and the vocal chemistry Grouplove. After one listen I was hooked with the addictive hooks, slick melodies and the lush vocals both acts possess, honestly it belongs in a FIFA soundtrack or a modern day arthouse coming of age movie.
Then you’ve got the video which I’ll just let them Violet explain, “We were like maniacs on that shoot day. We literally went straight from the studio at like 3am to shoot at dawn at 5am and were up for well over 24 hours. So much fun though to just be the four of us and our camera op running around Vancouver to put together this music video.” And then Daysormay added “…we’d all been awake for 24 hours or more. The night before the video shoot we were in the studio working on Tessa’s part all night and ended up only going home to grab camera gear between the studio and the shoot.”
