Kenna – Chains (video)

Posted in Artists, Drops, Music Videos on April 28th, 2011 by Hyphen

A few weeks ago, I randomly thought to myself that it was about time for two of my favorite non-hip-hop artists, Kenna and Miike Snow, to drop some new music. While I’m not aware of any music from the group, Kenna has just released the first of three EP’s in his Land 2 Air Chronicles series, all leading up to his next album, Songs For Flight.  Here’s the first video from the project for “Chains,” a song all about discovering what binds us in our every day life and trying to break these restraints.

Kenna was in town last week and stopped by Sound Session, only for the studio in our new production room to screw up the audio of our interview.  I do have some video, so I may still post it, even though the sound quality is pretty poor without the mic audio.  The conversation was great though, as it always is with Kenna.  We discussed the new projects in detail and dived deeper into some philosophical debates over artistry and musical integrity.  I’ll try to get it posted soon, but for now, he says hi:

If you caught Sound Session last night, you know we ran through the entire Revolutions Per Minute album from Kweli and Hi-Tek.  While I decide how much of the video I want to let loose, the homies say what up…

Melanie is gonna be a star.  The album cuts I heard are even better than the single and she’s real cool people too.  Be on the lookout for her on Sound Session real soon.  Need proof?
