Raven is the long-anticipated sequel to Kelela’s impeccable studio debut, Take Me Apart. The new album finds her more certain and at ease with her creative fluidity’s exceptionality, no matter how high or wide its waves.
Kelela emerges from the tides of her higher self’s oceanic orbit with a fifteen-track, continuous play LP exploring autonomy, belonging and self-renewal as healing. With all the sonic, visual, and physical sensualism that magnetized her early core fanbase, Kelela’s new album finds her more certain and at ease with her creative fluidity’s exceptionality, no matter how high or wide its waves.
Kelela Mizanekristos is an American singer and songwriter. From her very earliest work, honesty and vulnerability have been cornerstones of Kelela’s art – even when clad in the armor of the avant-garde electronics she so deftly inhabits - and her Warp debut Take Me Apart saw her double down on both the emotional intensity and resonance of her message as well as the sonic seeking she is renowned for. Raven is her much anticipated follow up.
