Kinlaw Shares Video for New Single 'Permissions'
Today breakthrough artist Kinlaw shares the new video for her second single of 2020 'Permissions', premiering now on them. Kinlaw arises from the wreckage in this striking masterpiece, an homage to moving forward. Watch it below and keep an eye out for some surprise cameos from members of the Bayonet fam!
The track, with its jolting percussions and harmonic vocals, meticulously builds tension, creating a cinematic journey with an unfamiliar ending. And the thought-provoking video demonstrates Kinlaw’s powerful expression through bodily movement and choreography, something that, for her, goes hand in hand with the music she composes.
Kinlaw says of the track:
"I only allowed myself to write this track while I was moving forward physically. I turned it into a bit of a game; there are many mental games woven through all of the tracks, really, but this one has the most. I wrote Permissions on a bus, in the back of a car, on a plane, and every lyric and melody was written while walking or running. I was in an extraordinary depression at that time and wanted to honor it, yet still, write something for a future that would hopefully feel different.
Permissions' first few notes start quite high and immediately settle into low. The entire melody, if drawn out, would look somewhat like an EEG brain scan or something, with the spiking lines up and down and all around. It can sometimes be challenging for me to sing it. I like that about this one. The feelings are hard, the words are hard, it's hard to sing, yet here we are, dancing together."
