CALGARY — Hot off the heels of new record Love and Lust, Jadea Kelly has a new video for the dreamy opening cut “Make it Easy.” A record fully engrossed in the dark truths of infidelity, human frailty, and all of the darkest corners of the categories of Love and Lust, Kelly reveals herself in ways we’ve not yet seen from the Toronto songwriter. “Make it Easy” opens the record with all of this vulnerability at the forefront, introducing us to the title lyric in its washed-out sing-along chorus.
The video features Kelly herself, alone in a monochromatic forest, collapsing onto the ground. The forest floor then gives way and we find Kelly drifting through a lake, her white dress shifting around her as she makes for the surface. It’s a striking visual metaphor for internal tumult, and BeatRoute is extremely excited to exlusively premiere this new video.
Jadea Kelly’s new record Love and Lust is out now via Kelly’s own record label Darth Jadea Records and she performs at Festival Hall on November 4th and the Mercury Room on November 5th.AB, Alberta, Festival Hall, Jadea Kelly, Love and Lust, Make It Easy, Mercury Room
