Today, 20-year-old vocalist, musician and songwriter Moss Kena shares the video for his new single “Silhouette.” The video premiered via Wonderland today. From his upcoming second EP, the track was produced by Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, Sampha, King Krule). The One + One EP will be available to buy and stream on November 23rd via RCA Records/Ministry of Sound/Cult Club Records.


Of the video, Astrid says:

“I wanted the video to show a loving but toxic relationship. I also wanted it to show a different side of the song – how you sometimes can be your own biggest enemy – being self-destructive.

To me the song could be about any kind of relationship. It could be a friend, family member, boyfriend, girlfriend or yourself. I hope this video makes it possible for people to interpret it in their own way and relate to it with their own story.”
