Regarding the video for “Earth Song Amanda explains’:

“For our second collaboration with Riki, we imagined two worlds– an ethereal macro world of soft edges and organic matter, and an uncanny pastoral reality. We really leaned into practical effects, playing with focus and reflections on water for a dreamy effect.”
