Get ready for an odyssey that ends in a mind-bending, psychedelic crescendo!
The band shares:
“When developing the visual concept for ‘Hollowed’, we chose a distinct approach in translating the song visually. While the lyrics explore an outer transformation driven by an inner need, we reversed the video’s theme: the external transformation now poses a threat to the internal. This ambivalence highlights the song’s conflict between having a choice and feeling powerless. ‘It’s alright, whatever you do.’ Or, to quote Celine Dion: ‘There were nights when the wind was so cold / That my body froze in bed / If I just listened to it right outside the window / There were days when the sun was so cruel / That all the tears turned to dust / And I just knew my eyes were drying up forever / It’s all coming back to me now.”
