Cat Velez - 8th May 2015

Emile Rafael has paired with Emilie Nicolas to create a soothing, beautiful celebration of the great outdoors to accompany her song Pstereo. With awe-inspiring scenic views of snow-topped mountains, valleys and the beach, Emile then adds an extra, highly surreal element: a group of whales flying amongst the mountains. 

If you've always wondered what flying whales would look like, look no further.


"I really wanted to capture that feeling of being on the road through a breathtaking landscape where it’s just you, the car and the music. You’re so in the moment and perhaps the low-lying clouds start to make shapes and your imagination leaps.

"This is the closest I get to pure bliss, when I’m on the road. I also was striving for something simple and elegant, where the video doesn’t overpower the song, but rather lets the song breathe more into it. I hope I was semi-successful."
