Listen to “Infected” by THEO – An Unapologetic & Empowering Song

THEO (@theomusic_) is a London-based Gen Z singer-songwriter and producer with Irish roots. Not too long ago, she released an unapologetic and empowering new single, “Infected.”

“‘Infected’ is about the idea of leaning into recklessness and not being a bad thing. It followed a period of my life where I’d been really responsible and held a lot together, and I wanted to flip the idea of letting go and embracing the idea of mistakes (whether drunken or sober) not always being a bad thing.” – THEO explained

Backed by PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music fund for 2024, THEO’s star continues to rise with the release of her “Infected” single. Guided by her silky vocals, the track finds THEO unapologetically succumbing to self-destruction, with a sultry production setting the tone for her confessional lyrics and mesmerizing tone. As the Irish talent boldly embraces the darker moments she experiences, “Infected” delivers an empowering blend of feminine energy and gritty, electronic R&B undertones that perfectly demonstrate THEO’s rising confidence as an artist and performer.

“Take me down where only broken people go.”

A mesmerizing blend of R&B and neo-soul, “Infected” paves the way for THEO’s forthcoming EP with Grammy-winning producer Naughty Boy, due in Autumn 2024. She was discovered in 2021 by the super producer famed for his work with stars such as Beyoncé, Emeli Sandé, and Sam Smith.

THEO has continued to build momentum as a One to Watch within the UK R&B and neo-soul scene. After dropping her debut EP “Everyone Starts Somewhere” in 2020, she has worked tirelessly to hone and perfect her craft, performing live at esteemed festivals including The Great Escape, All Points East, and Lovebox, and even opening for the Sugababes at the inaugural Trainlive festival in December.

In 2023, THEO played an impressive 31 gigs alone. When it comes to new music, last year she teamed up with award-winning author and performance poet Sophia Thakur for the feel-good R&B offering “There’s Always Something,” which was followed by further singles “Don’t Even Want It” and “Under The Table” with Lebo.

“I’m afraid of letting go.”

Born in the UK to Irish parents, THEO credits their love of homegrown artists such as Van Morrison and The Commitments for kickstarting her love of soul music as a child. Her formative years spent regularly attending mass saw her passion blossom, finding inspiration in the harmonies heard at church and the soothing gospel choir sound.

THEO finds inspiration in the many females leading the way within the UK R&B scene (such as Joy Crookes and Jorja Smith) while also counting future-facing act Kaytranada as a big influence. As 2024 makes way for a new string of releases and a forthcoming EP, she’s already been supported by notable media outlets and fans alike.
