At the tail-end of last year, in November in fact, we heard Valerie Teicher aka Tei Shi's then-new single, 'See Me'. Since then, she's released her latest EP, Verde, to much acclaim – a worthy follow-up to her 2013 Saudade EP.

Now she's unveiled a video for 'See Me', created by DREAMTIGER, and shot between New York and Colombia. Teicher herself shared these bilingual words about the ideas and thoughts behind the video:

  • English: This video was shot between the New York winter, and the mountains and streets of Bogota, Colombia. Two environments that I identify with very strongly. It came together kind of spur of the moment, I had an amazing team with Dreamtiger and Jonathan Wing helping me fulfill the idea. We spent some days exploring Bogota, the city where I spent most of my childhood and where my mother's side of the family has lived for generations...along the way we found some breathtaking and really unusual settings, which gave the song a totally new life. I wanted to be able to share this part of my identity through my music somehow, so here it is, in me re-discovering a lot of what defines me and my history through the music that has defined me for the past year. Hope you enjoy it.

  • Spanish: Este video fue filmado entre el invierno de Nueva York y las montañas y calles de Bogota, dos entornos con los que me identifico fuertemente. Sucedió de una forma muy espontánea, acompañada por Jonathan Wing y los fabulosos Jonatan López y Adrián Arredondo de Dreamtiger. Andamos varios días explorando la ciudad donde pase mucha de mi infancia, y en donde ha vivido mi familia por lado de mi madre por varias generaciones. Pasando por la ciudad encontramos unos lugares totalmente increíbles y únicos, que le han dado a mi canción una nueva vida total. Quise compartir esta parte de mi identidad a través de mi música de alguna manera…así que aquí esta! En medio de mi redescubrimiento de un lugar que me define a mi y a mi historia, con la música que me ha definido en esta etapa de mi vida.
