Kali Uchis - Dead To Me (Acoustic) [Video]
Kali Uchis sings about losing someone over a harp instrumental, whilst finding solace next to a fish tank… It all sounds very arbitrary but this is the video for the acoustic version of ‘Dead To Me,’ the recent single from the Colombian-American singer-songwriter’s studio-album ‘Isolation.’
The transitional feel of the video matches the lyrics as Uchis sings, “don’t come for me, I won’t send for you, know you’re dead to me,” in what seems like a parallel universe. The harsh lyrics and serene new production, perfectly contrast the fantasy-led video which sees Uchis standing out in an orange dress, against a blue colour palette.
Intimate and stripped back, particularly when compared to the more upbeat original, the acoustic version of 'Dead To Me' is a great example of how well a single can work, even without a hyped-up production.
