Tinashe's "SONY Lost In Music" session left an enduring impression on those in attendance.
Tinashe has posted a short clip of her stripped down performance of "No Drama," on her Instagram account. We have been lucky enough to unearth a full version for your eyes and ears. Tinashe begins by explaining the new arrangement, by way of stripping the song down with live instrumentation, and increasing her vocal output in lieu of Offset's absence in this exclusive version.
Shades of purple envelope the group as they perform to a private audience. The standard trap 808s are replaced with a complete and varied drum performance. The musicians collaborate effectively in confidence of Tinashe's vocal lead. It's no secret that her music is best appreciated by a somewhat discerning audience. Her "nocturnal electronic sensibility" is most comprehensible when the freedom of the musical ear is left undeterred.
This session is part of the "SONY Lost In Music" series. The series aims to defamiliarize audiences with "unforgettable new musical experiences" of their favorite artists.
Watch as Tinashe takes her show on the road to SXSW this weekend. "No Drama"comes off Tinashe's upcoming sophomore release Joyride. Check out the session for yourself.
