Video: Kingdom "Bank Head (feat. Kelela)"
- Words: Tim Gentles
Kingdom's collaboration with up-and-coming vocalist Kelela, "Bank Head," was arguably the most striking track from the Fade to Mind co-founder's recent Vertical XL EP, and now the lavish track has received a video treatment. Directed by Jude MC, the clip mixes verdant imagery with shots of Kelela against a celestial backdrop, giving the video a religious and apocalyptic bent that perfectly complements the tune's nuanced blend of beauty and darkness. The appearance of the video is a welcome reminder of Kelela's vocal talents—which we got a taste of last month when Bok Bok dropped a live grime mix featuring her singing—before she drops her forthcoming mixtape, Cut 4 Me, on October 1.
