Autre Ne Veut's Anxiety is a comely batch of tussling words and sounds — "His sonic ideas are subtle and elaborately produced, while his lyrical declarations are plainly worded and fraught with meaning," Puja Patel wrote for SPIN. The Brooklyn producer born Arthur Ashin also channels some excellent influences via his low-key R&B. "Ego Free Sex Free," for instance was at least in part inspired by Usher's "Climax" (the gift that keeps on peaking).

Autre Ne Veut's stately single now gets a classy video to match courtesy of director BANGS and the fine folks at MOCAtv. The new clip opens on a ballroom full of tip-toeing, curtseying aristocratic types, moving in automatonical synchronicity while a phalanx of stoic servers stand by with platters of unknown delights. But rather partake in the party, the guests merely do their introductory rounds ad infinitum, until the final moments of filming, when the façade simply falls apart.
