Whilst I was ambling about Barcelona for Primavera festival, a couple of guys I met recommended that I go and see an artist called Kelela. I didn't know her then and passed up that opportunity (instead opting to see The Replacements and Antony And The Johnsons), but when I saw news of a new single I made sure to finally educate myself. I'm pleased I did as 'Rewind' is really rather great.
'Rewind' is the second track to be released from the LA based singer's Hallucinogen EP which was originally expected back in May. The first track 'A Message' surfaced back in March, and can be heard below, but the EP is a long awaited follow up to her critically acclaimed 2013 mixtape CUT 4 ME, and is produced by man of the moment Arca, who has produced for FKA Twigs, Björk and Kanye West over the past two years.
The Hallucinogen EP is due out on the 9th October via Kelela's own Cherry Coffee imprint on Warp.
