With an immersive background in film and visual arts, the group directed a video for each song on the EP, all four videos serving as an interlocking story of self-discovery. As lead singer Tigrane Minassian explains, “the videos are interlinked in the same way as the music harmonically interlinks, the hope is that both will encourage repeat listening and viewing and that new layers (and connections both visual & sonic) will emerge as the listener gets more enmeshed.”
