Arriving right on time, today sees the release of Skin, the second installment in Director Andrew De Zen’s esoteric three-part music video collaboration with Alaskan Tapes. Shifting location from the domestic interior of previous film Waiting, a deserted beach becomes the canvas for an unfathomable event observed by a lone witness.

Andrew provides some insight into his intentions for this lighthouse sigiled mid-point in the trilogy:

“One of the most important aspects about the video for me was capturing this essence of an old folk tale. One of the types of stories you might hear in a small coastal town or in those mysterious rumours of what could be a ghost sighting. Those stories normally revolve around a tragic figure or event and so we wanted to lay it all out in front of us and strip things bare to its most simple, most reserved point. Becoming observers to something that is kept mysterious yet feels like it has deep roots in its own lore and history.”

2/3. Death (An Old Folk Tale)
Beyond the sea a lover’s call,
Her footsteps stretched onward.
Along the horizon lays a man
Covered in thin skin.
A father left derelict under the lighthouse’s gaze.
