Kinlaw The Tipping Scale

Choreographer/artist Kinlaw has announced her debut album The Tipping Scale will arrive on January 22, via Bayonet Records. Known for her solo works and multimedia productions with as many as two-hundred performers, with contributions from Devonte Hynes, Caroline Polacheck, SOPHIE, Dan Deacon and more, as well as renowned dancers and performance artists in the NYC scene, Kinlaw steps out on The Tipping Scale to showcase her work in a new light.

Along with the album’s announcement, Kinlaw has shared the first single off of The Tipping Scale. ““Blindspot” brims with pop synths that arpeggiate and swell in a minor key, theatrically punctuated by tense moments of silence, with only Kinlaw’s focused whispering to carry the beat. The track is accompanied by a cinematic visual that features Kinlaw’s choreography, and shows her reckon with accepting memories of her younger self.”

Kinlaw on “Blindspot”:

Blindspot is an excavation of the psychological mind that analyzes the link between our relationships with the people around us and our acceptance of self. I started doing a really cool therapy called EMDR while in process of developing this video with director Kathleen Dycaico and was able to recognize that the refusal to accept time, mainly myself during some of those times, was reflected in the way I was speaking about relationships. Our child selves are so brilliant – they are resilient, tricky, explosive, expressive. I needed to start off this album by giving a nod to the dynamic ways we perceive not only the people around us, but our integrated self.
