Zen Death Squad are a trio of young producers and multi-instrumentalists creating dark widescreen textures and cinematic atmospheres. Their new single, Where The Whales Sleep, is part of an upcoming trilogy released over the coming months, each with an accompanying video and artwork, and is available for free download from their website.

The video was directed by Italian artist Bruno Costarelli, who has made visuals for Deadmau5 and Pendulum, among many others, and works for London-based design house Immersive Ltd. The video won second place at the Celeste Prize for Live Media, and has been featured in several other shows and collections. Striking and hypnotic, it is a piece that explores the themes of combustion and regeneration.
