The lead single from Los Angeles producer Kingdom’s fifth EP, Vertical XL, “Bank Head” is tense, restrained R&B in the tradition of Aaliyah, Brandy and Cassie, a new look for a producer who comes from the vortices of clubland. Making her Fade to Mind debut, Kelela sings of a physical desire and an attendant longing, which video director Jude MC depicts as nothing less than elemental, eternal like the sun and the stars, deep like a murky cave. Like so much of his and Kingdom’s work, the feeling is beyond human.
