SCINTII Signs to Houndstooth Shares new single & video "Times New Roman"
We are delighted to announce our newest signing, Shanghai-based Taiwanese singer-producer Scintii, with her first single for us, "Times New Roman". Its melancholic 21st century nu-trip hop sound was developed with guest producer Danny L Harle (PC Music, Charli XCX).
"Times New Roman" is Scintii's first release since her second EP, Aerial/Paperbags, on SVBKVLT in 2018, and marks a step up from the wistfulness of her previous EPs to a tougher, deeper sound. The video for "Times New Roman" was directed by Kynan Puru Watt who has previously worked with Arca. Scroll down to watch in full.
"Times New Roman is one of the main languages used in graphic design," Scintii explains, "and this song is about finding that language for myself as an artist."
Times New Roman is loaded with remixes, from the cream of current underground club music producers. SVBKVLT label mate Osheyack shakes out its hard lines in classic trance stabs; Mechatok ups its saturation for a bouncing hardcore version; hyped London producer Loraine James takes the track apart by stems and re-plaits them into glitched-out IDM, and Palmistry (who just worked on a track with Charli XCX) chases rushing synths before dropping into a bubblegum breaks.
