Jessie Reyez Before Love Came to Kill Us

The Claire Edmondson-directed audio-visual takes Reyez through the streets of her Toronto hometown, a collage of images ushered by the sui generis tenor of her hoarse voice with a barrage of questions and contemplations about love, hope, chances and longing, all with a chiding note and palpable genuineness: 

We’re not supposed to/ but I can’t learn my lesson/ I miss when you were my best friend/ before love came to kill us…/ So under the mask of the moon/ could we dance in the past before love… before love came to kill us. 

Reyez’s officialdebutalbum, Before Love Came to Kill Us, was released on March 27, 2020. It has made the short listfor this year’s Polaris Music Prize.
