Am I late on finding out about Kelela? Embarrassingly so. Will that stop me from writing this? Of course not.
I saw Kelela being covered by Dazed, and her stunning style encouraged me to listen to her music. Her soulful vocals placed over hypnotic beats have launched her into my all time favorite artists, and I am recommending her to everyone that I can.
The Artist and their
album EP name: Kelela – Hallucinogen
Heard of/listened to before? No and no.
What I did while listening: Laundry. Exciting, I know.
Better suited for: Everything, do everything and anything while listening to her music. Dance to it, vibe to it, do your laundry to it.

The EP only had six tracks, and to be honest it was difficult to narrow it down because I loved it in its entirety.
Songs and musical artists this reminds me of:
Would I recommend it?
Yes, her vocals are phenomenal, you can feel the beat internally and it combines to be a musical experience. I am listening to her mixtape soon, and I absolutely cannot wait to see her at Afropunk.
