Kelela has a look in her eye, she’s ready to level up. Clattering,
treacherous drums give way to sputtering-then-simmering
synths then that glorious, inquisitive voice.

It’s seductive and potent and most definitely, “LMK” is enticing as hell.

A towering achievement of an album.

Kelela’s celebration and command of sensitivity and rawness
in her music is both fortifying and revolutionary.


In a time where the world seems insanely out of control, there’s power
in tenderness and loving, which is exactly what Kelela is about,
not just in her music but in her life.

A very welcome return from the producer, songwriter, and singer
who looks set to embark on the biggest push of her career.
