  • 2 min read

Confronting the complexities of human emotion and desire, Therese unveils her haunting new EP, 'Masochist'. This six-track collection weaves a sonic tapestry of pain, vulnerability, and the intoxicating allure of darkness, promising an experience that is both unsettling and profoundly relatable.

Therese's music defies simple categorization. Expertly blurring the lines between R&B, blues, and soulful melodies, she creates a sound that is as captivating as it is jarring. With 'Masochist', she delves into deeply personal territory, her lyrics and vocals acting as a form of catharsis and a conduit for exploring complex, often taboo, emotions.

Therese's authenticity is a major part of what makes this EP both striking and timely. We live in a world where vulnerability is often masked, and where the darker aspects of the human experience are pushed aside. 'Masochist' breaks those barriers, offering listeners a space to acknowledge and explore their own shadowed desires and pain. Through its exploration of raw emotional territories, it becomes not only a captivating listen but a thought-provoking reflection on the complexities of the human psyche.

Speaking about the new release, Therese broke it down song by song, sharing, "'Wondering' is about having feelings for someone and not being able to tell if they feel the same way about you. 'Pretending' is about two people feeling more for each other than they are willing to admit. 'Star Crossed' is about knowing a relationship won’t work but wondering if there was a way to change that outcome. 'Math' is about throwing caution to the wind for someone you crave 'Before Sunrise' is about dealing with someone who pretends like they are going to choose you over someone else but you know they won’t 'How Do I' is about knowing someone isn’t good for you and trying to change your mind about wanting to be with them"

The extended play format allows Therese to take listeners on a more intricate journey than a single might provide, and she does so brilliantly. Within the six tracks, Therese crafts a narrative arc delving into various facets of its central theme. Listeners have the opportunity to immerse themselves more fully into Therese's world – a world that is at once seductive and unsettling.

If you're looking for a release that doesn't shy away from stark honesty, musical experimentation, and a compelling exploration of the human condition, Therese's 'Masochist' demands your attention. Her bold and uncompromising approach to sonic storytelling will hook you in and leave you wanting more.
