Haley Bonar makes piercing, contemplative, fuzzed-out songs with pop sensibilities. Her forthcoming album Impossible Dream is due later this summer. We’ve already posted the lead single “I Can Change,” and today she’s given the followup “Kismet Kill” a visual treatment.
The song is a penetrating rumination on just how transitory love and beauty can be. She sings “I was impossible when I was beautiful” over crunchy guitar layers and a woozy, infectious bass line on the refrain. The visual accompaniment is reflective of her music, contrasting youth and beauty against harsh, jarring imagery as a loose narrative of a prom gone wrong unfolds. A prom queen loses her way and embarks on a haunting, evocative journey of self-realization. Watch via NPR.
