Pussykrew, directors: "We were trying to construct a visual experience outside of the standard music video language. We’ve created a visual piece based on the mood of the track and our imaginary virtual space.

PussyKrew, directors: "Our aim was to create a piece beyond the standard performance video. We presented the artists as 3D scans and fused them with digitally created environment. The vibe of the track is intense, bit aggressive. We were trying to recreate this atmosphere as a visual experience and produce powerful imagery, where the invisible violence is transformed into personal strength.
