Music videoEdit

The music video for "Sokal" was mostly shot in a cornfield, in early summer 2014.

PlotEdit

The video begins with a young girl visiting an art museum. The girl then finds a painting on the walled consisting of Misyakova. The painting then comes to life, which leads to the beginning of the song. The scenes shift between the forests and a wheat field throughout the video. Once the song ends, the scene then shifts back to the museum. This is where we learn that the girl in the beginning was actually Misyakova herself.
