Hallucinogen takes us on a journey through ecstasy, lust and longing.
The EP’s opener “A Message” and closer “The High” are both subtle tracks with little fanfare that allow Kelela the opportunity to showcase her soulful vocals. The former has been described as the stage that comes before lust and is the dark realization of love.j
The Ethiopian-American singer has gone from performing in jazz clubs while she was a student at American University to her own European tour this past spring. If you aren’t a fan of the festival circuit, you may not be too familiar with Ms. Kelela, but if that is the case, you need to get to know her FAST. She has a unique sound and look that is captivating and sultry.
Hallucinogens is available on iTunes.
