SINGLE REVIEW: Thandi Phoenix – Cleopatra 

With her headlining tour kicking off over the weekend, Thandi Phoenix has dropped another release to coincide with these run of dates. ‘Cleopatra’ is a bold electronic track that is full of empowerment. Channeling the iconic Egyptian femme fatale she wants people to remember their beauty and power and find their inner strength. “Bounce, take it in your stride, get it, I got mine”. Oozing a dark and moody electronic beat, she lifts the hook with experimental drums and complimenting layered beats. It has this underground club vibe to the production that makes it so interesting to listen to. As soon as the DIY beats in the chorus drop, you’ll find yourself wanting to dance and vogue your way across the room. She manages to captivate this energy in such a bold manner. It also compliments the drum and bass and electric fuelled sound her previous singles have headed towards and shows a growth in her production efforts. This is a bold song for Thandi Phoenix and one people won’t be able to stop themselves dancing to.
