Bok Bok feat. Kelela: Melba’s Call

Emoji Beyoncé, How To Dress Well, Shit Robot and more in the music we tweeted this week

Joining forces with British producer—and founder of the record label Night Slugs—Bok Bok, Los Angeles-based singer Kelela again mesmerizes with her stunning vocals (which are reminiscent of a young Janet Jackson) on “Melba’s Call.” The song plays off moments of silence almost as much as it does its minimal, at times spacey, beats. It’s a track that ebbs and flows in a surprising way (without jarring), even after several listens. It looks like Kelela abandoning her degree in sociology and international relations at American University, to pursue a future in music, wasn’t entirely a gamble after all.
