Alissic is the pseudonym of Brazilian model Alissa Salls. She co-directed the video alongside her partner, Ollie Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon.

According to a press release, the musician was born nine months after her parents encountered a UFO, and grew up in a small town in Brazil “spending most of her time as a vigilante, protecting frogs from salt attacks.”

She began playing the recorder aged seven before moving onto the xylophone. After being scouted by a modelling agency aged 13 and dropping out of school, she later lost interest in the industry in favour of bedroom recording.

“At the age 23 Alissic has no idea of what’s happening but is now here to share her avant-pop music & words with planet earth,” the press release reads.
