Kelela – ‘A Message’

Directed by Daniel Sannwald...

Kelela matches stunning production to a pop vision which extends far beyond style or commerciality.

New EP 'Hallucinogen' is out on May 5th, a six song cycle which treads through light and dark, love and sexuality.

The tracklisting alone is enough to suggest the narrative:

a message: rejection and amputation
gomenasai: domination and empowerment
swoop: feral lust and longing
all the way down: rebirth and recovery
hallucinogen: delirium and ecstasy
the high: the payoff

Opening track 'A Message' has now received the visual treatment from Daniel Sannwald. Starkly shot, the intense clip features Kelela staring at the camera in near nudity – exposed, fragile and enraged.
