Published Sep 14, 2015With Autre Ne Veut (a.k.a. Arthur Ashin) ready to release his sophomore LP, Age of Transparency, many may be wondering if the singer has, in fact, got the goods. A new a cappella video for his "Panic Room" intends to prove it.
The clip finds Ashin undertaking an American Idol-style audition for a panel of judges, who witness a sans-accompaniment performance of the R&B cut. They stare on in amazement as the artist delivers lines that are devoted, possessive and powerful.
There's a level of intimacy here that makes it a bit uncomfortable, a feeling that stretches across the faces of the judges throughout the video as Autre Ne Veut grimaces and grinds through the cut. You'll discover their verdict down below.
The album version lands with the rest of Age of Transparency on October 2 via Downtown.
