Kelsey Lu
It's a version of 10cc's yacht rock classic...

Kelsey Lu is a one off.

Growing up in a Jehovah’s Witness household where popular culture was largely eschewed, she rebelled and began defining herself on her own terms.

Last year's extraordinary 'Church' EP was a vivid introduction, opaque R&B elements set against songwriting that married the confessional to the poetic.

New release 'I'm Not In Love' may well seem familiar - upending expectations, Kelsey has tackled 10cc's yacht rock classic.

Twisting and turning the material in fresh directions, it's a slo-mo soul treatment, the sparse arrangement applying heightened intensity to the source.

The visuals were co-directed between Lu and highly rated visual artist Alima Lee, and Kelsey Lu's floor-length braids steal the show.
