R&B / electropop singer and songwriter Kelela impressed us twice last year: first with an early afternoon appearance at the Made In America Festival, and later with the release of Take Me Apart, one of our Top 15 Albums of 2017.
Of the record, our Rob Huff wrote:
A masterclass in tension and release, it cuts to the feeling of finally knowing what you want, in love and in life, and not being willing to wait for it anymore. And it expresses that with a determination and vulnerability that feels anthemic.
This week, Kelela announced a run of Winter tour dates with The xx in New Zealand, and a handful of stateside engagements upon her return — and one of those includes a February 27 gig at the TLA on South Street.
Tickets for the show are on sale now, more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Below, listen to the title track to Take Me Apart and scope Kelela’s full run of tour dates.
