I’ve been a fan of Kelsey Lu for a while.
She’s unlike any artist and I really can’t compare her to anyone else.
The classically trained cellist is making orchestral string music for the Instagram generation — even recording her debut album, “Church”, in an actual church. Lu was raised in North Carolina as a Jehovah’s Witness and spent most of her time reading the Bible. Now, she has dropped a nine-minute music video that will hit you right in the feels.
“It’s like the snow that gathers beside the road,” Lu says in a voice-over at the start of the video. “Over time, it turns, from its pristine whiteness that it attempts to block blackness below to a sludge-fest, tire marks and wind, and on occasion, ice. Revealing that nothing can go untouched, and in time, all will be revealed.”
On Instagram, Lu wrote that the song formed part of a vital healing process. “‘Shades Of Blue’ was written during a time of deep depression, and later became realised as a conversation with it,” she said. “I hope it brings you glimpses of peace as it did for me.”
