Following the release of their debut single 'Take My Soul', premiered by Clash Music on May 22nd, London-based alternative Dream-pop duo PINERO|SERENE has shared the single's striking new music video on June 14th. The single comes off of their debut EP Dark Matter, set for release on June 7th, recorded and mixed by Itay Kashti (Fink, John Power, The Deer Tracks) of Blue Room Studios.

PINERO|SERENE is the outfit made up of German/Filipino bass player, Cheryl Pinero and UK vocalist, Neeq Serene, inspired by sonic revolutionaries such as Portishead, Massive Attack and Radiohead. The duo create an immersive, dream-like experience, born from the amalgamation of melodic bass lines and a melancholic vocal narrative. Their unique songwriting collaboration personifies emotional experience.

The sonic dimensions of ‘Take my Soul’ are a dreamy, otherworldly concoction, imbued with genuine ardour. It is an artistic exploration of the fundamental coexistence of darkness and light, both in the relationship with oneself and with others.

Directed by Favourite Colour: Black, the video for 'Take My Soul' is a vision of flames and flesh with modern gothic imagery. Though the video is very minimalistic, it is quite breathtaking in quality, leaving little to trickery as the focus seems to be on the very details of the artist’s faces and skin while they bare their souls.

Speaking of the track PINERO|SERENE comment: “‘Take My Soul’ was the birth of our songwriting synthesis and was written at a time when we were both emotionally vulnerable and unshielded. In our music, we have cultivated that sentiment, to present an honest and powerful state of being that we hope others may identify with.”
