a visual ep


featuring Kadio



The idea behind the creation of a this Visual EP was to tell the story of the artist, encompassing the emotions she expresses in her music. Not only understanding one emotion within a singular song, but taking it further and developing the emotional path she went on through her three connective songs, “New Haven”, new release “Beware of the Dog”, and “director’s cut”. These songs allow for the understanding of the process of healing and takes the listener through the different stages one feels within this process. So, our goal with this music video was to be able to comvey this visually, where Kadio has already done so musically.


The first song in the video, “New Haven”, focuses on the interpersonal conflict of the artist she was dealing with as she was losing herself trying to please another person. This song represents the first realization of this and the lonely feeling around it.

As she recognizes the changes she needs to make “Beware of the Dog” comes next and conveys the frustration the artist was feeling with the journey of processing this emotional event that she had went through.

“director’s cut” plays on a movie metaphor where the artist describes the nostalgic feeling an original movie has to a certain time in your life and when an remake of that movie comes out everyone is so excited to relive the that time they remember while watching the original, but is never the same. The artist compares this to how she was seeking out comfort in things that were familiar to her, but it just wasn’t the same. She was able to learn from this and eventually get to those final steps in her healing process.

“Kadio” is the solo project of twenty-year old singer-songwriter Katie Lussen, currently based in New York City and the Lower Hudson Valley. A DIY musician who writes, records, and produces her music from the comfort of her bedroom, Katie released her very first single In the Air back in 2018 and has been sharing more of her homemade songs with the world ever since. Her most recent project, everything will be OK (2021), is a collection of home demos written as a love letter to her hometown and all of the people who shaped her early life. She was named a finalist in Tarrytown Music Hall’s “Rock the Hall” showcase for unsigned local artists in 2022 and is currently in the process of writing her next project, slated for release sometime in late 2023/early 2024.
