Tessa Violet has this indelible quirky pop vocal that is almost haunting in its delivery. I love the playfulness; yes, it’s a bit morose, but I can’t help but smirk when I hear her.
L.A. is home to Tessa Violet, the pop songstress that has been playfully releasing memorable tunes over the last few years. I first heard Tessa on a collab with the Vancouver pop troupe daysormay, and was instantly struck by her vocal style. For this song, Words Ain’t Enough, Tessa plays alongside Chloe Moriondo, a beautiful songwriter who channels her listless twee angst amidst a myriad of emotion. This song started as a voice to a friend’s embattled relationship, in which she won’t listen, and he’s just not good enough.
I told myself I wrote this song from her perspective about this guy, but when I look back on it, I was also writing from my own experience having been in her position many times.Tessa Violet
The truth is that Chloe Moriondo may be the perfect match for Tessa, the two give off a perfectly moody and intrepid Jenny Lewis vibe. I am actually giddy thinking of the full-length album these two could deliver.
“Tessa is an amazing musician and person so it was really fun and natural to do this version of one of my favorite songs of hers together!! Being allowed to be a part of the beautiful music she creates is an honor.”Chloe Moriondo
