Jon Hopkins long-awaited return with Emerald Rush, the first release from the new album Singularity, comes with this fantastic multi-media visual from Elliot Dear and Robert Hunter.

A boy in a forest is lured by a throbbing chrysalis to release a beetle that looks eerily like the young lad. Then he is transported into a cave where the swarm of beetles gather around a glass-surfaced lake. But is it actually a lake...?

And what appears to be entirely animated subtly changes as the boy slip[s into a space dimension, amid exploding nebulae. These were actually created in lo-tech science experiments by Dear and Hunter at the start of the eight week process making the film. More on the making of the video at It's Nice That.
