Pororoca is the longest wave on the planet—a tidal bore, with waves up to 4 meters high that travel as much as 13 kilometers inland upstream on the Amazon River. Its name comes from the indigenous Tupi language, where it translates into “great destructive noise.”

Check out this fantastic video for the title track of the new record. Directed and animated by Scott Pagano, it’s an underwater exploration, “inspired by the forms and movement of sea life and micro organisms.”
