Eastern Mirror: Describe the creative process behind your first music video “Replay” featuring Wyrd and Ratri?

Kino: It all started in 2019 when Ratri, Wyrd and I came together to write this song and we finished it in 2022.

To begin with, Kohdi Jing’s (film maker/director) brainstorming idea in video making was indeed a spectacular performance resulting in successful release of this music video.

Eastern Mirror: What is the song replay about and what’s the inspiration behind it?

Kino: “Replay” is a lofi- soul music number inspired by my past experiences; shading fuzzy memories to escape reality and dwelling on love that seldom exists.
