[MUSIC] KARI FAUX UNVEILS PROVOCATIVE EP COVER & SMASHES PHONE WITH A BAT IN NEW VIDEO
An influential, genre-bending and multi-faceted artist, Kari Faux is a captivating and refreshingly honest presence on the microphone. Returning to the fold with a deeply personal and affecting new project, Kari Faux prepares for CRY 4 HELP EP, her first new project since 2017, arriving on March 8th. Shot by influential photographer Quil Lemons, the cover art and everything about this project is meant to make a statement.
To accompany the reveal of the EP’s tracklist and cover art, Kari shares “Leave Me Alone,” her new music video. A slinky piece of futuristic R&B, “Leave Me Alone” finds Kari switching between a deadpan delivery on the verses and an entrancing falsetto on the chorus, dismissing those who only care about her for her fame. An inventive commentary on our constant state of connectivity, Kari Faux unsuccessfully tries to shut herself off from the world in “Leave Me Alone,” holing up in a hotel room to avoid everyone and anyone. When she finally gets sick of the incessant calls, Kari heads to a nearby baseball diamond to smash her phone with a bat, with a cameo appearance from Baltimore art rapper JPEGMAFIA.
