Dark Waves is a surrealist and surf-themed music video for producer Robot Koch and singer Delhia de France's song Dark Waves from Robot Koch's dark and mysterious 2016 album Hypermoment. In it we are following a lonesome rider roaming the dark waves of Central California and explore the insignificance of man against the wonder of nature.
