Onra Shares New Video for "The One (feat. T3 of Slum Village)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
Earlier this month, we shared a download of "The One," one of few tracks from Onra's Long Distance album to feature live vocal work. The French beat craftsman wrangled Slum Village's T3 to drop the vocal contribution over his boogie-minded production, and now he's snagged Irish graphic designer and video maker Donal Thornton for the making of his single's video. Appropriately enough, the video's images are all rendered to have that fuzzy VHS glow we all know and love, and contain a pastiche of mid-'80s city-life nostalgia (i.e. answering machines, desperate strippers, bulky CD players). The aesthetic works well with Onra's musical vibe, so much so that Thornton's video looks almost like a moving album cover for Onra's latest record.
