Oakland cellist Baeilou got a nice New Year’s surprise this year: A fully-animated video for her song “Mourning Mantra.” Her friend, director Miguel Rodrick, put together this imaginative video for the song, from last year’s debut EP, just, you know, for the fun of it.

It’s not all fun and games though — the song, and Rodrick’s accompanying visuals, emphasize Baeilou (aka Mia Pixley)’s concern about the effects of global warming and the dangers of plastic waste in our environment. Learn more about it here.
