Last year Belgian artist Tsar B announced her arrival with ‘Escalate’ a brooding and complex introduction into her luxurious brand of electro-pop. Things sure did escalate soon after. The track went viral and dance classes frequently used her song to bop along too.
Now she’s back with the equally captivating song ‘Rattlesnake’, which judders and twists itself into a slice of pop magic. Speaking over email, Tsar B gave us the lowdown on her excellent new song.
“I’m struggling with the fact that my love and hate feelings are really close to each other. My passionate view on life and on love makes me an explosive creature. When someone close to me does something bad, my love immediately switches to enmity: I lose all faith in them. The funny part is that it only endures for about 30 minutes. Then this feeling fades, skins itself and my love comes back twice as big. ‘Rattlesnake’ shows my disappointment, followed by a great anger, and this happens in a vicious circle but it always ends in love”
