Thandi Phoenix teams up with Rudimental for ‘My Way’
Sydney artist THANDI PHOENIX has dropped ‘My Way’, a mammoth track which sees her teaming up with none other than UK drum-and-bass powerhouse, RUDIMENTAL.
In the 7-odd months since ‘Standing Too Close’, it’s been a wild ride for Thandi Phoenix. After scoring high rotation on Triple J and reaching #1 on the Australian Spotify Viral Charts, she was picked as main support by Rudimental on their Australian tour. They quickly formed a tight bond which resulted in ‘My Way’, a pounding electro-pop track that shows Thandi can do no wrong.
‘My Way’ lures you in with a gentle electro-pop progression and Thandi‘s restrained vocals, before pulling out all the stops and erupting into an enormous drum-and-bass banger. The chorus is truly phenomenal; Thandi‘s vocals are effortless as they soar above the pounding drums and pulsing low-end. It’s an absolutely packed mix but her voice pierces through it without any fancy tricks – just sheer power and raw talent. Despite some tell-tale Rudimental sounds, the track is recognisably hers, with her talent for stunning vocal hooks and catchy songwriting shining through the DnB glitz.
Thandi Phoenix‘s craft has always played with different styles of electronic music, from the notes of trip-hop in ‘Standing Too Close’ to the club-adjacent, ‘Tell Me Where The Lovers Have Gone’. ‘My Way’ proves her vocal and songwriting talents are killer no matter what form they take. Given Rudimental‘s track record of sky-rocketing the popularity of artists they work with, we’re more than sure 2018 will be the year Thandi Phoenix takes over the world.
