AkMus comeback MV for Dinosaur is a veritable treasure trove of cinematic references. It pays homage to the Netflix series Stranger Things and the work of Steven Spielberg which is delightfully apt, as the visual inspirations and the song all thematically explore childhood, fantasy, and fear. The duo has often touched on musical styles of the past and conceptually delved into motifs of adolescence. This comeback stays true to their nostalgic image in sound and visuals, using Spielberg as a narrative vehicle for their journey through a childs imagination.
