Drowned in Water Light (official video)

“Drowned in Water and Light” directed by Pedro Maia draws inspiration from “Punish Honey”’s universe and attempts to accentuate the feeling of distress and asphyxia of the music. Fully shot in Black & White Super 8 film with further optical and chemical manipulations of the film material, this work delves into the feeling of suffocation as well as self-deprecation. An extended version, with additional footage made by visual artist Harry Wright, is being presented on selected shows as a live A/V set.
