Electronic duo VTR have released a video for the title track of their debut EP, ‘Soul To Skin’. The record introduces the listener to a sensual and soulful sound that touches on pop and R&B. Vocalist Kristy Clark and producer Olsi Rama skilfully tie their talents around each other, as well as applying them to a haunting cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’.

The song ‘Soul To Skin’ opens the EP and immediately sets the tone for their sound. “VTR’s track had an intense and emotional effect on me”, video director Savannah Setten tells Self-Titled. “As I listened, I began to envision a cult of captivating androgynous men and women – all in an intimate state of reflection, trapped in an unrecognisable space”.

She continues: “I wanted the video to offer a space for people to apply their own projections of what the moments of touch, intimacy, and isolation between the men and women really meant to them personally, rather than dictating this to them with a linear narrative. It felt like the visuals could be a much more intimate, personal experience that way”.
