Pastel-hued Colombian goddess Kali Uchis is *literally* our aesthetic. Pink smoke bombs? Antique cars? Female domination? Palm trees? 60s subculture? Crop tops? Chola vibes? A girl after our own hearts! This 21 year old living in Los Angeles by way of Virginia has us obsessing over her silky smooth vocals & retro-tinged sound. With dancehall, soul, doo-wop, & hip-hop influences, her sugarcoated love jams deliver like no other of our time. The closest comparison is perhaps a Latin Amy Winehouse or a maybe even a little No Doubt, while still remaining unmistakably unique & true to herself.
See video she co-directed for “I Know What I Want”.
Her new mixtape Por Vida sends us into a euphoric state. Even the digital booklet is a dream! Download for free here. She’s going to blow up in 2015, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
