Lyric Video

The lyric video shows Kaiya sitting above her city of Melbourne in contemplation with the breeze flowing through her hair and says she wanted to capture a feeling and a moment. ‘There were so many times where I felt free of all the worries and fear by just sitting somewhere silently’ she says ‘when I gazed out at the city I almost felt a sense of relief that it was finally on pause. We’re always going and to just be there in silence with no beeping of cars in traffic was magical’.
