Last year we were completely moved by some footage we found of Loie Fuller's Serpentine Dance. She inspired the pioneers of film, appearing in all the early films of the late 1800's and early 1900's. To celebrate the season and to a great year, we got together with our favourite video team and created this film to accompany Kalimba 3, one of the instrumental pieces from 'Fault Lines' which will be released in 2018. The song was one of the early recordings for the record and was born when we found the tiniest thumb piano we had ever seen sitting at the back of a drawer. A total mystery to how it got there but had been there for at least 15 years and was waiting to sing.
