Music Video: Kelsy Karter - Kiss The Boys
Raised on Motown, rock'n'roll and soul, and having followed a wanderlust-inspired restlessness to chase her dreams in California, Australia-to-Los Angeles transplant Kelsy Karter had us at 'I listen to Sam Cooke and carry a switchblade'. Packing an unabashed creative sensibility that combines the knowing self-possession of an old soul with the fearless confidence of youth, she conjures up a mix of driving grooves, fuzzy riffs and dreamy melancholy that proves to be a refreshingly seductive blend of fragile emotion and defiant swagger. Her voice infused with an raspy slow burn that pulsates with bruised, heart-weary emotion, Karter's uniquely smoldering delivery radiates a pensively sensuous allure that is arrestingly charismatic in its unfiltered authenticity. Having released her 'Kiss The Boys' EP in recent months, here she provides the vampish humor of the visuals for the Faustian bargain -inspired, femme fatale laced menace of the EP's title track.
