Ghanaian-Australian singer, songwriter and producer sibling duo Kinder (aka Savannah and Briony Osei) have released one of the most exciting single exports of 2021. So it should come as no surprise that the video is just as wild and free.

The clip for ‘Bus Stop’, which premiered on PAPER Mag, was directed by Ribal Hosn (St. Vincent, The Veronicas, Joey Bada$$) and styled by Kurt Johnson.

“Ribal was incredible to work with,” says Kinder. “Shoot day was so fluid, it was like improvising music but with visuals. He was so quickly and effortlessly switching between looks and vibes with the camera set ups. Watching back the first few raw takes on the day, we could tell there was something really great happening.

“We spoke to a few different people about the video and how to capture the right more nighttime club atmosphere that’s in the song production. Ribal sent us a mash up of 20 other videos, remixed over the start of our song, and we knew he totally understood the track. He’s a real fan of the music videos we love, so we were on the right page creatively from the start.”

‘Bus Stop’ pays tribute to Savannah and Briony’s father Kofi. It’s a darker sound than their most zealous fans are used to, (even with the dancefloor-ready climax), but the muse behind it is heart-warming. It tells a fictional tale about a character who can’t get off ‘African Time’, a term Savannah, Briony and their mother use to describe Kofi’s creative interpretation of timings.

Kinder are heading out on tour in June with shows that will take them all the way through to late October.
