I was absolutely amazed by the stunning beauty of the surroundings within this music video; it not only completely embraced the traditional chinese atmosphere, but by also adding mechanical elements which are weaved constantly throughout the scenery, they are also a reminder of the reality of mechanisation and modernity which we face in the 21st century. But this truly reflects on Sodagreen's concept and the sound that they wanted for this album too; this song <Stories>(故事) although using traditional chinese instruments to create a distinctively traditional sound, they've added their own little twist to the arrangement and also use the lyrics to make it not just some forgettable song mimicking Chinese tradition in order to fake some pride in their heritage, but instead, created a song which is distinctively theirs, distinctively Sodagreen; a fusion of classical chinese heritage and modern ideals. Truly an enchantment for both the ears and the eyes.
