kilo kish has released the animated music video for “Lakisha”, a particularly autobiographical track from her recent album Reflections in Real Time. The video was co-directed by kish and Korean animator Yong oh Kim.
Reflections in Real Time is a loose conceptual LP delving into the quirks of kilo kish’s interpersonal relationships, work, frustration, apprehension, and inner thinking. As if working backwards, kish titled the album’s songs first and then did stream-of-consciousness exercises to uncover how she felt about each of the different themes such as “self importance” and “fulfillment?”. Playing out like a melodrama and soundtracked by producer Ray Brady, kish pulls from all realms of emotion except for love and romantic infatuation; instead she shares the most private elements of her being including fear, embarrassment, and confusion. The result is a thought capsule of her state of mind from 23 to 25 and is unequivocally her most personal and honest work. The record also marks the launch of her own imprint Kisha Soundscape + Audio. The label will exist congruously with her brand Kisha where she is preparing a home goods and accessories line.
