TILSEN IS "PREOCCUPIED"

April 6, 2020

 

No stranger to the New Faces of Toronto playlist, Tilsen returns with another quirky, memorable track.

 

Tilsen's "Preoccupied" delivers a glossy-pop sound with an inescapable chorus that will stay lingering in your head. Perfectly encapsulating the pre-relationship butterflies, Toronto native Tilsen delivers a bubbly love song with “Preoccupied.” Filled with infectious melodies, Tilsen evokes the same vibrant energy of her pop predecessors while touching on her most recent infatuation.

 

“I wrote this song when I was first falling in love with someone. I felt the attraction from the moment we met. I couldn’t focus on anything else...the song wrote itself within a few hours” said the songstress.

 

Born and raised in Toronto, Tilsen was singing before she could speak. As the daughter of an opera singer, she formed a deep affinity with the human voice. Tilsen’s songs explore real love; the highs and lows, the ecstasy and the pain. Her vocals are intimate as if she is singing her lyrics from between the sheets, and into her lover’s ear. Tilsen tells a love story that is relatable to anyone who has been in love and those who want to love better.

 

“I spend a lot of time reflecting on my life and my relationships.” she laughs, “I sort of document my thoughts and feelings in my lyrics”

 

Tilsen’s music is powerful, optimistic and strikingly honest. Her imagery is grand; from ballrooms to vast landscapes, there is a regal, vintage aesthetic and Tilsen is a dignified kind of sexy, whether wearing a classy Victorian gown or delicate lace lingerie.
