“The music video for “Stelae” from Jaguar Priest features a surreal scene of dispersing fractals, following a woman on a disorienting journey through rivers, forests, fire, and eventually the sun, the viewer is left with both a calming and unsettling experience. With no real tether to the tangible world, “Stelae” lives on a different plane, with hushed vocals complimenting soft sonic sensibilities sprinkled throughout.”
