Kali Uchis offers her fans a visual/acoustic account of "Dead To Me."


Kali Uchis finds solace next to a fish tank and a harp player. To each their own, the comforts of transitional objects only lasts for so long. We've all been there. A relationship reaches an impasse and communication is no longer possible. Uchis sings "It's okay to disagree, we don't have to be friends," the weight of which is only felt when you lose someone so precious the objects associated with their name must be buried in scorched earth.

The acoustic version of "Dead To Me" gives the song a soft-tissue rinse, not unlike the dreamlike production afforded to her all throughout Isolation. Uchis' parallel universe is by design a place where hardship is spoken about in the past sense, if only to create the fantasy pop experiment we ourselves use to wash away the hurt.

Quotable Lyrics:

I don't know what you been told
See, I am not your enemy, uh oh
But if there's one thing that I know
Is that you ain't a friend to me, uh oh
So don't come for me unless I send for you
Know you're dead to me
Just don't come for me, I won't send for you
Know you're dead to me
You're dead to me, oh
