Women Of Trip Hop – Elly Kace, Deshira, Philomena, Valko

Elly Kace shines on her new single, the vibey cinematic Nothing.   

Nothing is just one piece from a strong overall release from Brooklyn based artist Elly Kace.  Her full concept album, “Nothing I See Means Anything,” is set to release on 11/19/21.  To promote the album, Elly brought Nothing to life, teaming up with dance artist Jasmine Mendoza on a captivating music video.  

The long breath and low hum that introduce the song, accompanied by an afro funk style hand drum that gives Thievery Corporation vibes, dissipates into Elly’s entrancing vocal. With her incredibly accurate precise vocal prowess Elly starts pulling you deeper into her hypnotic song.  Like a trip hop siren luring you farther into the abyss, with long notes that envelope you in her sonic vocal power.  

  The melody sometimes drips with musical theater, accentuated by the album cover shot of Elly in full face and body paint, like a musical medicine woman sent from the heavens.  The unhinged melody cultivates into indigenous chants of primitive expression, Elly reaches deep within her animalistic musical instincts, conjuring rain songs from a distant past, tapping into her innate musical self.
