Art of Shades (shortened to AOS) is the moniker of the Franco-Italian producer based in Paris who after ten years of piano at the Conservatory and two years spent on the benches of the American School of Modern Music is now in the forefront crafting his own unique brand of electronic influenced soul music. His newest effort is the downtempo, somber single titled "Undone" featuring singer Sylo Nozra. The singer provides a laid-back emotion-filled led delivery that exudes sober reflections from a deep place within. The song was made between Paris and Toronto with the internet helping to bridge it together. Sylo Nozra and AOS became great friends and are now part of the same squad, OTrip, in Canada.
The visual is directed by Jonah HABER and Martin KLAPPERBEIN who opt for a dark and somewhat gloomy aesthetic that truly reinforces the reflective theme of the song. The song serves as a fresh start for AOS's musical direction, and the perfect way to cap off his EP.
Quote from Art of Shades:
“Undone” was made between Paris and Toronto, with the internet helping to bridge the gap made by physical distance. Throughout the process, Sylo and I became great friends, and are now both a part of the same Canadian squad – OTrip. I sent the beat to Sylo from Paris and, after hearing what he did on the vocals, wanted to finish the track over in Toronto. Since the beginning of the Art of Shades project, I’ve always been seeking features from all around the world and finally – last winter, that brought me to Toronto and then Los Angeles during the summer. I met some really incredible people during those trips that helped to fulfil my ideas. The relationship we now have is genuine, to say the least. "
