In the "Control Me" video Slick breaks down in the middle of a long and dusty road. He gets out of his vehicle and breaks out into involuntary dance moves. These motions, jerky and puppet-like, take him away from the tarmac road and into a nearby field of orange trees. VanJess appear between scenes, mirage-like, to deliver their smooth vocals.

"This is definitely one of our most artistic videos, we wanted to capture the idea of control in a unique and expressive way," VanJess said via email.

VanJess's Silk Canvas is out now.
