Earlier this month we shared the video for When Saints Go Machine’s “Parix,” and today we have a pretty freaking amazing live performance of the same track. Not only is the video gorgeous, the mood is heightened with the echoey acoustics, the intricacies of the piercing production, and the haunting sound of the leading vocalist’s quivering song.

We adore Alecia. Last week, Alecia Chakour & The Osrah opened for ERIMAJ at Littlefield in Brooklyn and pretty much took the house down. The above video is their performance of “Ghost” – jazzy soul perfection.

Alecia has some seriously killing vocals, y’all – look out for this lady.

Below, stream the group’s EP that dropped late last year in case you missed it.
