Kelela – Raven

$63.95 Inc. GST

Released on February 10, 2023, Kelela’s “Raven” marks a dramatic six-year departure from her critically acclaimed debut album “Take Me Apart.” It’s not just a new album; it’s a metamorphosis.

Gone are the swirling, intimate synth-pop soundscapes of her earlier work. Instead, “Raven” embraces a darker, more introspective energy. The album dives into themes of societal unrest, racial and gender politics, and the complexities of navigating personal relationships amidst a world in flux.

Opener “Washed Away” sets the tone with its pulsing beats and Kelela’s breathy vocals weaving tales of resilience and defiance. Tracks like “Happy Ending” and “On the Run” pulsate with an urgent energy, mirroring the anxieties and uncertainties of our times. But amidst the darkness, there are glimmers of hope. “Contact” shimmers with a delicate beauty, while “Enough for Love” offers a tender vulnerability that feels both personal and universal.

Production-wise, “Raven” is a sonic tapestry. Glitchy electronics intermingle with organic instrumentation, creating a sense of unease and disorientation. Kelela’s voice soars over it all, a powerful instrument that conveys both fragility and strength.
