Nashville septet ELEL has been twisting genres for a few years now, and today they’ve delivered a stunning and entrancing visual for their shimmering track “Kiss Kiss”. The song, an understated gem that blends pop and indie with gentle vocals and faceted production, is cryptic and curious, and the new music video only enhances that mystique.
Amidst the greenery of some kind of obscure private ceremony, the melodies of an orchestra and then of a mysterious singer send the assembled crowd into a frenzy. With a fervent, religious air, the strange magic of the crowd reveals something mythical inside the song, a secret in its chords that’s driving the guests wild. Watching the video, you’re drawn in by the energy and obscurity of the insanity happening in that guarded glade — a perfect accompaniment to the off-kilter beats and light harmonies of “Kiss Kiss.”
