Kelela: A Message

Back in 2013, DC-born and LA-based singer/songwriter Kelela thrilled us with her mixtape Cut 4 Me. Now she’s announced her upcoming EP Hallucinogen—set to drop in early May—and released a slow-burning but spectacular track from it, called “A Message,” which was co-written with Arca. The video—directed by Daniel Sannwald—depicts a darkly lit Kelela cutting off her dreadlocks before eventually turning into an anime character.
