03 “Drowning By Numbers”
05 “The Fallen”

07 “Old Projector”
08 “You Will Know (Ohayo Version)”
The first single they released was a video for the song “Drowning By Numbers” which was directed by YUTARO and featured dancer Yukiko Doi. Boris said in a statement: “This video was filmed at a private showcase with limited invitation in April of 2021. It is a collaborative performance with a contemporary dance team. The song was transformed from its original performance and visualized; a big hat dances symbolically at the beginning of the new album.”
For their new single “Beyond Good and Evil” the video was once again directed by YUTARO. The band said in a press release: “There is a vast magnitude in a huge mushroom cloud and in decaying ruins. We feel both the sadness and beauty of these things at the same time; that is who we are. This video was made from the perspective of a mushroom cloud. The album W focuses on Wata’s vocals – and she is from HIROSHIMA.”
No tour dates have been announced for 2022 yet.
