Published Jul 14, 2020Toronto duo TRP.P have returned with a new single. "Tell Me" is the latest from singer-songwriter pHoenix Pagliacci and producer Truss, and can be heard below.
Truss's thumping rhythm and emotive strings and guitar underscore Pagliacci's layered harmonies, as she sings of the importance of reaching out to someone whether in emergency, in crisis or in need of someone to talk to.
"The song was written while I was at Sick Kid's Hospital," Pagliacci tells Exclaim!. "There was a 15 year old girl who had committed suicide and I couldn't bring myself to think about how bad life could seem at such a young age. The song stands to break down the feelings of solitude and isolation that are killing young people in this city and around the world."
"Tell Me" follows last year's 2TRP.P and late 2019 singles "God Forbid" and "Won't Be Home." Earlier this year, TRP.P shared a new video for 2TRP.P cut "Chakra Con." The duo will play Guelph's Hillside Homeside online music festival later this month.
