Videos, the debut EP from the Swiss duo TRUE, is a bright, shimmering, warm slice of emotionally charged Future-Pop, infused with elegant, classic songwriting.

In a way it's hard to imagine that this infectious, sultry, R&B tinged kaleidoscope of melodies was written and recorded by two classically trained Jazz musicians, but then again, who else could deliver tracks that sound so effortless and bare-bones essential?

The EP was almost fully written through free-form improvisation, in a fall-out shelter somewhere in the belly of Bern. The duo describe the writing process as a form of musical telepathy, as well as a commitment to unadulterated emotional truth. In fact, they decided to call the project TRUE after realizing that all of the songs they penned came to life, in one way or another. The lyrics are probably the only darker shade of blue found on this EP, and that's probably because they're x-ray-like honest to bone marrow about the pitfalls of human nature – our vulnerabilities and obsessions. And about the ever increasing vertigo of modern life and how we often fail to cope with it.

Although the instrumentation blends live drums with drum programming and is all about the toasty drones of old school analog synths, the sound design remains all around spacious, sleek and contemporary. This is music packaged for the now, but penned to withstand the passage of time.
