Earlier this year we recommended you keep an ear out for BOOTS, the previously unknown producer and singer-songwriter who had major credits all over Beyoncé’s self-titled fifth album. If you’ve been paying attention you’ll have seen he’s been keeping the momentum going with three new tracks since then, all of which are set to feature on an upcoming solo mixtape: “Dust”, “HOWL” and the Kelela-featuring “Autumn (Lude 1)”, the video for which we’re thrilled to have an exclusive look at below. Also directed by the plate-spinning BOOTS, the clip focuses on a neon, extreme close-up of burning matches morphing into something like lungs, as Kelela’s face swims into view through smoky visualisations and her heady vocal brings a cold flash of “winter” to the song’s laid-back kick. Consider us hooked.
