I had an instant connection to "Windows" upon listening, which grew stronger after reading the lyrics and reflecting on the past couple months of my own life.
The footage used was shot from the windows of my apartment, while in quarantine during the apex of Covid-19 in NYC.
For me, the video is about meditation, confinement, and observing the mundane, while experiencing something completely different. Looking at the neighbor's flowers but imagining someone's life story.
