Kelela Announces Hallucinogen EP, Shares "A Message"


R&B singer on the rise Kelela has announced a new "6-song cycle" — or EP — called Hallucinogen, "that explores the light and darkness of love and sexuality.” You'd be forgiven if that description — hell, even the new single "A Message" and its accompanying video — remind you of FKA twigs's entire output. Throughout her brief career, Kelela has often been, sometimes unfairly, compared to Tahliah Barnett, but it's hard to ignore how indebted "A Message" is to LP1 ("A Message" and LP1 share a producer in Arca, a producer known for his preternaturalversatility).

Check out the striking—and yes, twigs-esque—music video for "A Message" below:

Hallucinogen is out May 4/5.
