Kelela ‘Rewind’ (Official Video)
KELELA has once again set the internet alight with the highly anticipated visuals for her latest single, ‘Rewind’. She’s made a name for herself when it comes to the consistently high quality and unique video clips that accompany her music, and that reputation has only been further cemented with this clip.
In what could be described as a technicolour whirlwind, Kelela sings, dances and plays around with the camera in a variety of settings. From narrow and bleak corridors to grand ballrooms under chandeliers, she shows off her moves whilst laying down the Janet Jackson-esque jams.
As the clip progresses, strobe lights flicker as the track picks up, with the camera angles getting more obscure. Kelela has a knack for making the normal or even mundane exciting again, and ‘Rewind’ goes to show just how exciting she can be.
This track comes just before the release of her hugely anticipated EP, Hallucinogen , which is out October 9. Judging from this and her lead single, ‘A Message’, it goes without saying we will be in for one hell of a treat when that bad boy drops, and we have our fingers crossed it will prompt some live shows in the future. Kelela season is near here.
