Though Adeline is known as the voice of celebrated band Escort, the work she has produced on her own is something of a dream as well. The video for her single “Emeralds” is out now, and we’ve watched it several times this morning already. Who else needs a breath of fresh air injected into their day? This is it. The video plays off contrast, dark and light emphasized with each new frame while Adeline sings soulfully into the camera. The song itself is seductive, and the way the video has been pulled off is pure art. Check it out below!

Check out Adeline at Afropunk on August 25th.
