This Belgian singer’s brooding debut single will make you want to get high by the beach

Take a trip to California with Tessa Dixson.

September 26, 2017

Brussels-based moody pop singer Tessa Dixson is brand new, but she has a lot on her mind. Her debut single “Prayer” describes the heart-wrenching tumult of an uncertain relationship, with echoes of MS MR and Lorde’s bass-driven and catchy tunes, and a grainy video shot amidst the dusty landscapes and rocky coastline of California. There’s a special, soulful quality to her voice — and she’s just signed to PIAS, so expect to hear more of it soon.

Over email, Tessa explained to The FADER: “‘Prayer’ is an ode to all of us that need to find our way and are struggling through life and love. Filmed in California, it catches all the feels and emotions through Bob Jeusette's lens. The song is a whirlwind of different emotions such as love, melancholia, and hope which reflects a particularly intense relationship. It’s all part of my journey.”
