This is the singer’s first official music video.

How To Build A Kite was launched on Saturday 11 July at The Substation.

Special mention of the LEGO piano featured in the video

The heart-shaped LEGO piano featured in the video was custom-designed by local brick artist Jeffrey Kong of Artisan Bricks and was made exclusively available last year through a crowd-funding campaign run to partially finance the album. Now, from 12 July onwards, this commemorative LEGO piece will be retailed exclusively at all Lock+Store facilities together with the album.
