“The video, directed by Maria Constanza, is a study of motion – a depiction of will over nature, and it marries perfectly well to the sound. Like the tune, there’s a poetry to the stuff you’re looking into, and the movements that stuff is making. What is this thing we’re looking at? Can we unravel its nature by observing its actions? What happens when something delicate is met with a large, and dark force? Well, in this video, and in this music, beauty is shown as being preserved. The interaction between internal and external forces produces a different kind of peace.” - Popblocks blog
