Starting with a landscape shot on a thermal imaging camera, directing team Broken Antenna add elements that make it completely alien, all relating to the title of Toddla T's new track.

Whether it's jagged whirlpools emerging from the black lake, or crystal structures suddenly forming above the hills, these are all real phenomena created by magnets - some of which come with the release of Magnets, Toddla T's track featuring Andrea Martin. Everything was captured in-camera, and the effects are a mixture of ferrofluid, iron fillings and printer toner distorted by magnetic force.

"We wanted everything in the video to be organic elements comped together rather than using 3D, to make it true to the release itself," say Broken Antenna.
