“Lobbied as one of the most interesting bands to come out of the Nordic indie scene, the Delay Trees choose to fight seven-month winters with…dream pop.” – Coke Machine Glow
“Majestic yet mellow, insanely pleasant yet chillingly melancholic with a dreamy disposition – and the BEST ALBUM of the year.” – Allscandinavian

Directed by 3D-artist and animator Teemu Erämaa, the footage was originally intended to be a short film about Teemu’s brother but after hearing the band’s music he thought it would be the perfect fit for his story. Acted out by Teemu’s brother, Tomi, who in real life draws dozens of pictures daily, listens to a plethora of music and writes stories about robots and droids, his drawings come to life as they spill into a grassy field of his subconscious. Filming took place in the dusk of Western Finland’s countryside and was supplemented with shots in a local doll-museum.
To re-create the 8-mm retro-look, the director attached vintage Canon FD lenses to his camera with a 35-mm adapter built by himself. Tomi’s images came to life when they were scanned in digitally and animated in 3D to interact with him in his imaginative world. Calling himself the “ambassador of good will” in real life, Tomi’s mind runs wild with his creations as he even rescues his paper made damsel in distress.
