Koof & Vessna debut recording collaboration with music video for “Echoes”
Koof & Vessna are two talented local artists who have teamed up for a new collaboration, sharing their debut single and music video “Echoes” this week. Koof Ibi can usually be found behind the camera at the Random Tea Room Sessions or behind the horn in West Philadelphia Orchestra; Vessna Scheff is a singer-songwriter with crystal clear vocals and a trusty ukulele. Together, the pair create an atmosphere of soulful, reflective solitude.
The video for “Echoes,” directed by Ibi and featuring Scheff with dancers Kingsley Ibeneche and Lily Kind, presents the duo’s clean, simple aesthetic bathed in natural light. The dancers move independently but make their marks on each other with brightly colored paint, bringing to life Vessna’s lyrics about the ways we touch the lives of those we love. Koof’s horns and a trio of strings lend a soulful groove without overcrowding the airy space.
Watch “Echoes” below and keep up with Koof & Vessna’s live dates here. They play Bourbon & Branch on May 6th with Caroline Reese, and return to the Northern Liberties venue on May 15th for My Son Bison’s residency with Church Girls.
