New Music Video: Eyes – Nuex

On the heels of their debut Affectus EP, DC-based electronic-pop duo NUEX share their gripping new video for single ‘Eyes’. Directed by Abraham Vilchez-Moran, the video tells the story of a young black teen struggling to understand the dysfunctionality of life at home. With his mind, he lets the darkness pass through him in the form of what he believes to be his older self. The choreography is representative of his inner turmoil.

Revered for their dark, experimental sound, NUEX has garnered acclaim from the likes of Afropunk, BlackBook, Saint Heron and Galore. Comprised of singer-songwriter Camille Michelle Gray and drummer-producer Teddy Aitkins, Affectus is a five-track collection that fuses haunting synths with kick-clap, hip-hop influenced rhythms.

After forming in 2014 and recording demos in the basement of Camille’s house just days after meeting, the duo honed in on a unique chemistry that would eventually define their sound and lead to the release of their debut singles ‘Lights Off’ and ‘I Make Bones’.
