Ela Stiles - “Kumbh Mela” (video) (Premiere)

[30 April 2014]

By PopMatters Staff

It’s appropriate that the video for Ela Stiles“Kumbh Mela” features footage of cascading waves, because her meditative, sublime voice is a force of nature. And it has to be, considering that the Sydney-based Stiles goes a cappella to conjure up the art-pop mysticism of the likes of Bat for Lashes and Julianna Barwick on her eponymous debut. Ela Stiles comes out 2 June, via Bedroom Suck Records.
