In an Australian exclusive, Now or Never presents American singer, songwriter, and producer, Kelela.
Since her debut release, Cut 4 Me, in 2013, Kelela has established herself as a sonic and aesthetic vanguard, accelerating her inevitable rise to widespread acclaim in both pop and underground culture. Blending intricate, experimental beats with her ethereal vocals, Kelela straddles the frequencies of both R&B and dance music to create a genre-defining style of deconstructed club music. It's elegant, soulful, and sensual, close to divinity.
Intermingling her futuristic sound with silken lyricism, poetic polish, and kaleidoscopic personal style, Kelela offers a multi-dimensional artistic perspective beyond this realm.
Supporting Kelela is Avant-R&B singer, musician, and songwriter serpentwithfeet. With soaring vocals and lyrics that delve deep into themes of love, identity, and queerness, his music reverberates with unfiltered emotion and sensitivity.
Proudly following in the tradition of R&B artists whose gifts were helmed in the church, serpentwithfeet's music is filled with passion and reverence for the genre, which is undeniably present across his oeuvre.
MIRASIA – a mighty presence and community leader in the Melbourne/Narrm party scene – has joined the lineup. Known not only as Ballroom Australia’s resident DJ, MIRASIA is also the co-founder of both The House of Silky and Dutty – A Narrm-based party that centres the QTBIPOC community.
