Emeli Sandé – My Kind of Love

I usually don’t get lucky enough to see an artist as she begins to show up in the public consciousness. And while I am, admittedly, late to the party in terms of my personal discovery of this particular artist, my enthusiasm for her talent should be enough to make up for it.

The fourth single from UK vocalist and songwriter Emeli Sandé’s debut album Our Version of Events was released in late April.

My Kind of Love is a soul-stirring look into the unconditional love of a woman for someone she cares very deeply for. Sandé’s voice is like porcelain — crystal-clear and pure like a teardrop in a raging ocean.

The video, directed by Chris Mehling, who also directed her third single Next to Me [MV], is a soft yet poignant look at what Emeli would do to show her friend the passion she has for her. The understated beauty of the clip is second only to the power behind the lyrics and Sandé’s vocals.

I can’t wait to see what’s next for Emeli Sandé. Her talent is incredible and her ability to reach inside herself and express emotion with great depth is absolutely stunning.


As unexpected as my path was to loving all things weird, more unexpected is my ability to get attention for writing about the stuff.
