Directing duo Machine Operated have accomplished an ambitious visual concept for Rejjie Snow's team-up with Snoh Aalegra and Cam O’bi - it's Rejjie on a Stranger Train.

It's not about the train journey as much as Rejjie's journey along the train - walking through carriages that each contain their own specific world: a tropical jungle with oversized plants; mountainous terrain with masked passengers; even an aquarium.   

“I worked on this idea with my buddies Josh and Nathan [Machine Operated] and before we knew it, we all had something solid and concise enough to deliver visually," Rejjie Snow told Hypebeast. "In short the aim was to distort your reality. [The video] was the world of Willy Wonka for me but on psychedelics.”
