With her Hallucinogen EP finally marked for an official release, we’re bound to be seeing a lot more of Kelela. That’s certainly true in the video for the alt-R&B singer’s latest single, “Rewind”. Shot in a variety of locations — an office hallway, a freezing basement, an old ballroom — using dark hued light fills, the video keeps the camera exclusively on Kelela. As she dips and sways to the track, the camera locks into a first-person point-of-view, making it seem like she’s dancing just for you. Check it out below.
Hallucinogen, a six-track effort that follows a relationship from exhilarating beginning to crushing heartbreak, is due out October 9th through Cherry Coffee/Warp Records. For more, revisit the opening track, “A Message”.
