Berlin-based indie pop duo JONAH is gearing up for the release of their debut Wicked Fever. The title track's ethereal music video, directed by Daniel Carsenty, sees longboard dancer Yoonji Seo riding through the streets of Hong Kong. The video, which premiered on C-Heads Magazine, heavily features Seo skating alone through the sprawling metropolis.

Her slowed movements are a tribute to classic skater girl videos — the same kind of nostalgia that Ariana and the Rose explored on "Supercool." As she takes us through the cramped cityscape to the tune of JONAH's spacey new single, pushed forward by gentle flourishes of piano and guitar, we see her old lover bathed in purple light and deep in thought. The two lovers never meet, making the journey through space and time all the more tragic as night falls over the city.

Watch the haunting, cinematic clip below.
