Music Video: Kaioyote - Sugar
With the brooding invocation and Southern Gothic-fired menace of 'Ghosts' hip-hop-infused soul, Kaioyote's made quite the impression with her arresting debut. Her voice an intriguing blend of subtle, raspy accents and slow-burning sensuality, she conjured up a woe betide and spectrally tormented sensibility that longed achingly for the redemptive light of a new day. For Kaioyote, however, it seems that melancholy doesn't necessarily have to be so doleful. Returning with the tenderly smoky vocal, confused emotion and searching-for-answers rumination of new track 'Sugar's video, she channels a more mellow, brass-and-harmonies retro-soul vibe that proves sweetly ironic as she inflicts material revenge for her man's wandering eye.
