The last few years have seen Kali Uchis setting the stage nicely for incipient stardom, but with Grammy nominations, slots at Coachella and a support tour with Lana Del Rey – not to mention a much-anticipated debut album – it is becoming abundantly clear that 2018 is hers for the taking.
Now the slinky new single “After the Storm” is accompanied by a bold and bright, 60’s Americana inspired music video by acclaimed British photographer and filmmaker Nadia Lee Cohen. The video is in keeping with Cohen’s signature style; saturated colors, melodramatic hair and make-up and surreal set design.
“We can find solace in the fact that we have to go through the bad stuff to truly get to the good,” says Uchis of the track. “Just because you’re losing at the moment doesn’t mean you’ve lost yet. The storm may be scary now but it’s how your flowers bloom later, and paradise is just beyond the rainbow.”
