Way before Steve Lacy and his crew of fashionable youngster pals breathed new life into Los Angeles’s R&B scene (his group The Internet’s new album Hive Mind actually came out today), J*Davey had the territory covered. The Los Angeles–based duo, composed of singer Jack Davey and keyboardist and producer Brook D’Leau, have been around since the early 2000s; their songs even first circulated via Myspace.
Today, Davey has released her first post-J*Davey single, “Undone.” It’s the first song that Davey has self-produced, and this newfound sense of confidence extends to her high-octane outfits in the accompanying video, which was directed by Danna Takako. “My stylist and I really wanted to show the evolution of style from the wild and edgy Jack Davey of the 2000s to a now mature, sensual woman,” Davey says. “The clothes are lush and fecund with many textures, much like the track.” They include rhinestone-adorned Vivetta thigh-high snakeskin boots, a red floral silk corset, long silky white gloves, and some unmistakable Y/Project chaps—a contemporary mix that also manages to look fit for a ’90s catwalk. See all the dramatic looks in the new visual below.
