London-based director Jesse Kanda, a collaborator of artists including Björk, FKA Twigs and Acra has released his debut EP. Operating under the name of doon kanda the five-track EP titled “Heart” is full of dark, cinematic textures that carry a playful and care-free edge.
In a statement, Kanda said of the EP, “My work might sometimes be coated with a layer of sharp pain like a blade to the eye or ears. But at the heart of it is always love, compassion, empathy… Each of the songs on this EP have this quality. The melodies are treated to cut you like a serrated knife. But hopefully, they are beautiful enough that you’d want to listen anyway.”
