KALI Shares “Anybody Else” Video Following Claud Tour + SXSW
March 30, 2022 BY Danielle Romeo
Hailing from Los Angeles, 17-year-old singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and budding producer KALI, shares the visuals for “Anybody Else.” In the video, KALI rides in the back of a truck driving down a meandering road with the wind whipping through their hair. The video for “Anybody Else” marks the end of their North American tour with Claud that just wrapped in New York on Monday, and ushers in a new chapter for KALI with the follow up EP to their critically acclaimed 2021 debut CIRCLES coming soon. In stark contrast to the lively, sunny instrumentation of the track, produced alongside Tony Berg, “Anybody Else” chronicles the different phases and emotions over the course of a faltering relationship.
KALI just recently wrapped up a busy week at SXSW, speaking on a Billboard panel mediated by Tetris Kelly in discussion with fellow artist duo Cartel Madras about music and identity. KALI also performed at several events, sharing the stage with artists such as Perfume Genius, Pussy Riot, Girlpool, Wet Leg, Best Coast and more.
CIRCLES, which V Magazine described as “one of the most remarkable debuts you will hear all year,” introduced KALI with the tracks “Someone to Hold,” “I Just Wanna,” “Lucy,” and “Back to the Start.” A recognized musical talent from a young age, they play a majority of the instruments on the project themselves, with additional production from Miro Mackie (The Neighbourhood, St. Vincent, Wallows) and Daniel Chae (of Run River North). The EP synthesized KALI’s own experiences as a teenager, and those of their friends via stories and recorded voicemails, into a cohesive body of work centered around their self-discovery.
Check out “Anybody Else” above and stay tuned for more from KALI coming soon.
More About KALI:
A prodigy of sorts, KALI, grew up playing recitals and covering Beatles songs, taking private lessons with music teachers, going to after-school music programs, and even taking songwriting masterclasses to nourish their passion. Intuitive and eager, they taught themself how to use Garageband and began writing and demoing songs that they would later teach their first band for their shows. Their relatable and honest indie-surf arrangements drew sweaty, teenage crowds to local venues like The Smell and The Viper Room and would lead them to their now solo work as KALI, whose second project is coming soon via Nettwerk.
