“Canyon Canon” Music Video by Kendra McKinley (Premiere)

11227400_1130557953637405_3822657218663663288_nKendra McKinley‘s debut LP, Chestnut Street, is a blatantly beautiful collection of whimsical folk and scat melodies as showcased on the track “Canyon Canon” which started as a one-line poem (by her friend Claire Williams) and turned into an Appalachian canon recorded live on a looping pedal.

“Flipped a canyon upside down and all I got was a dripping mountain.”

Two years later, The Mission-based songstress reinterpreted the song as “heavy metal witch seance” for its equally eerie music video of color gels, kaleidoscope lenses, gold tempera paint, and a fog machine –as directed by Chelsea Nobbs (of Van Wave) and Estevan Padilla.

McKinley is currently recording her sophomore LP at Tiny Telephone Studios with her older brother AJ McKinley (of Battlehooch) as producer.
