“Featuring illustration from Sissy Emmons and animation from David Hobizal, Ptarmak’s video for “Last Known Surroundings” comes off like a celestial lovechild of the original Tron, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Japanese art.“

The Story—
Born from a dinner table discussion on organic pattern formation and the reception of a new sound from a distant and emerging planet, the band Explosions in the Sky and the artists, David & Sissy Hobizal, set out to create the first ever music video for the leading track, "Last Known Surroundings" for "Take Care, Take Care, Take Care." Spearheaded by the visions of illustrator Sissy Emmons Hobizal, animator David Hobizal, and the band's invaluable input, this video hopes to serve as a synchronized visual accompaniment to Explosions in the Sky's "cathartic mini-symphonies."
