Private Project


When daily struggles and depression become too much to bear, Sofia flees to her family summer house. Secluded in the Gothenburg Archipelago and surrounded by nostalgia of her childhood, Sofia retraces her youth as she confronts her demons. A chance encounter, rituals, and friendship shine a light in the dark.

'Rituals' is the second project by CORRE, a creative audio-visual collaboration. The concept explores themes of mental health, friendship and nostalgia set to the frozen backdrop of Gothenburg's Archipelago in Sweden. The project brings together a team of British and Swedish artists and creatives to produce a story that spans many forms. As an album, a visual piece, and a short film, 'Rituals' breaks the norm of a standard music release, captivating audiences with sound, picture and story.
