Introducing TESS and her new music video for ‘Dark But Beautiful’; a fun, fizzy song with a really satisfying beat, fluid bass lines and mesmerizing harmonies. TESS’s sultry vocals soar over a gripping melody you’ll be singing for hours afterwards.
French singer-songwriter TESS was fascinated by music from a young age and influenced by heavyweights including Rihanna, Major Lazer, Drake and Radiohead. Mastering the guitar she started covering popular hits eventually writing original songs. TESS is known for writing and producing her other tracks such as ‘Endlessly’, which premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show and ‘Love Gun’, which received support from the legendary Elton John and amassed 17+ million global streams.
The visuals for ‘Dark But Beautiful’ take place in the middle of a picturesque desert, where TESS is surrounded by a group of tribal dancers. She teamed up with video producer Clémence Demesme who allowed them to tell TESS’s tale through the medium of contemporary dance. “Dark But Beautiful’ is a radiant and genuine single.” explains Clémence Demesme, “I imagined TESS and her tribe as the symbol of a daring and heart-to-heart generation. With them, we go through the desert, the night, the abysses, but we always find the light and move forward together.”
TESS is a newly empowered pop princess on a very exciting path.
