South Africa's Moonchild Sanelly shared her latest video, "Undumpable," a thumping ode to refusing to let things go. Produced by her Transgressive Records label mate Débruit of Congolese collective KOKOKO!, the track finds Sanelly defiantly demanding her would-be ex stick around to mend a strained relationship. "I won't let you dump me / Oh bitch / You're gonna fix this," she chants over pulsing production.
“'Undumpable' is a jam about a relationship where the couples’ tempers are frayed in lockdown, in a super intense atmosphere," Sanelly explained via email. "They’re fighting but they each feel like they’ve invested too much to be easily dumped.”
In the Hanru van Zyl-directed clip, cars spin artfully across the road, a Soweto tradition that began as a way to pay respect at funerals that has evolved into its own complex subculture. “The car spinning scene means a lot to me. It means liberation, freedom, and fire. It represents the wild fun streets of Soweto," she explained. "Knowing there are more women spinning cars now, having a woman spinner was crucial for the video. I love her energy and her sport."
