Surrey-raised pop songstress Rykka looks pretty chilled out in the video for her latest song, "Movies."
She and director Brianne Nord-Stewart shot the clip in an ice cave at the RhÃ´ne Glacier in Switzerland, a country where Rykka (born Christina Maria Rieder) lives part-time.
The man-made cave is carved from an 11,500-year-old glacier.
Likewise, the song is an icy slice of electro-pop, with a big chorus and lyrics about wanting what you can’t have, according to the Peak Performance Project-winning musician.
"’Movies’ tells the story of two rebels and their love affair as a brief escape from the social poverty of life,â€ Rykka stated Friday (July 17) through her record label, Indoor Recess.
"Together, the two protagonists lose themselves in the reality they create together, and fight for their illusion until the end.â€

The song is a follow-up collaboration with Zomboy and Vancouver-based songwriter Mike James, a team also responsible for Rykka’s 2014 track "Delirium."
"Movies" was produced by Warne Livesey at the Command Centre in Toronto.
