The video for Chicago singer Eryn Allen Kane’s soulful, stripped back single “Slipping” allows the singer’s rich voice and emotive writing to shine. Co-directed by Kane and director collective Verluxe, “Slipping” keeps the focus firmly on the singer’s expressive face as she stares into the camera and walks down an abandoned forest road. It’s an intimate treatment for a song that feels cut from timeless cloth—conversational, powerful performance set against a simple arrangement that builds from an energetic lilt to a dense climax. A reminder that a human face and a plainspoken, pretty song can be the only ingredients needed to hold attention.
