Kollaps – Could This Be

Kollaps is a duo formed by the classically-trained ex Cult Music affiliate Prayer and elusive producer Coop. Their latest video, Could This Be, is a beautiful, digital trip into the unknown.

Combining kaleidoscopic visuals with low-key colour pallettes and cosmic imagery its soundtrack is an equally hypnotic whirl of dubbed-out r’n’b.

Check it out right now. Exclusive to Crack.

Could This Be/Misery vinyl only release 4 May via Grade10
