Vocalist Tobias Atkins comments about the clip, “The Music video for ‘Beyond Us’ was inspired by a simple and effective creative vision. Geometry and shape were inherent in the music, as well as a sense of journey. We married those concepts by blending large scale projection with a simple laser light setup. These elements combined with the band’s performance were the key ingredients.“
And on the themes behind the song he says “It’s about facing who we are and that our shortcomings appears to be scarier than any horror movie or nightmare. I think it’s generally a very difficult thing to look straight in the eye. For those that don’t, we drift through life either unaware of a looming travesty, or we are awake and in fear. I think the punishment is far greater not meeting it head on. ‘Beyond us’ is about running from and also confronting the things we wish to forget or leave behind in time.“
