LATEST SINGLE - "BLUSH"
BLUSH is unapologetic pop, with a chorus that starts humming itself in your head as soon as the track ends. The Lazerbeak beat runs on a few spare but irresistible samples, with additional production from Andy Thompson (note the heartbreaker of a bass line in the final refrain). This is new sonic territory for Dessa, but BLUSH still bears her signature tool marks: a rapper’s facility with phrasing, and a clever metaphor about lunar tides at the heart of the hook.
