Kelela - "Rewind"
Kelela is back! Not that she left, exactly, but more that we've been waiting a while now for her second official project. Announced at the beginning of the year, the Hallucinogen EP was originally scheduled for release in May, but was pushed back, and now we've finally got our second sample, "Rewind," which follows the Arca-produced "A Message."
"Rewind," which Kelela produced with Kingdom and Nugget, feels like a future Fade to Mind party classic—airy, hopeful vocals about love on the dancefloor paired with a thumping beat. It's recognizably Kelela, but an exciting evolution of the sound she presented on Cut 4 Me. So far, the new EP is sounding stunning.—Constant Gardner
