Dusky Share ‘Skin Deep’ Video
Dynamic duo, Dusky, have shared the video to Skin Deep, a song from their upcoming 4-track EP, Ordinary World.
“This EP was all about presenting four different strains of our DJ sets and productions into what we hope is one cohesive whole. Anyone who has seen us DJ will know we like to work across deeper, rolling moments, harder techno sounds and more anthemic tracks, but there’s generally a certain vibe we try to reach for that ties them together; a sense of musicality, a contrast between light and dark.” say Dusky via the press release.
Director of Photography Colin Elves then expounds on the inspirations for the video adding “Our inspiration for the video came entirely from the music. It has depth, it has colour, and it feels expansive so we needed the video to reflect that. Listening to the track we started thinking about sunsets and extreme landscapes, but we knew we couldn’t just go out and shoot yet another full desert, mountain, forest scene. Instead we decided to go the other way: to shoot everything with macro photography. Seeing ordinary objects in extreme close-up you can lose sight of what they are and easily mistake them for something new. This allowed us to take the viewer on a journey from dry, arid, monotone landscapes through to strange, colourful, otherworldly places. A journey that hinted at evolution: life springing forth from barren mud flats, growing and developing, leading inevitably to the unnatural, often strange, urban landscapes that now engulf so many of us. And yet this epic journey remains contained within an area no bigger than your desk… It is also a bit of a tongue-in- cheek take on the title.”
