"My album is titled Joy Techniques because it explores the idea of going as far as manufacturing positivity when you have to. Making and performing this record is an intentional creation of that space. I wanted the visuals for the album to expand upon this idea through the lens of different directors with each video exploring a different take on what it means to be intentional about your own joy. For the "Joy Techniques" video, Miko Revereza and I found it in the bursting vibrancy of spring in Los Angeles after a particularly wet winter. Shot on 16 mm film with a Bolex over the course of a sunny spring day in Elysian Park, Miko truly captures the ecstatic sizzle of this song in his visuals. The way he films is similar to how I record as well - - first takes, following the inspiration, intuition over technique." — Nate
