Last we heard from Calvin Cardioid was back in 2012, when his masterful debut But Now I’m Looking Forward came out on King Deluxe, along with the now-classic animated videos for “Slow Dance” and “Lullaby For A Nameless Creature“.
A graduate from the NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Calvin currently resides in Toronto where he spends much of his time in an office cubicle producing music for mobile apps and games. With this new EP he wanted to express himself in the language of synth-pop minimalism, to write songs he might hear people whistling when passing them on the street.
Once again he’s been provided with stunning visuals, thanks to animating duo Philipp and Anna-Maria. They’ve crafted their own interpretation of “Everything To Me”, which Fabian then also incorporated in his stylish cover art design.

“Barrelling through gorgeously rendered low-poly solar systems, asteroid fields, and ice caverns, a lone astronaut goes on a simple journey in Calvin Cardioid‘s video for “Everything to Me,” animated by Philipp Feigenbutz and Anna-Maria Scharf out of the German Studio Feix. Along the way, the mysterious spaceman shows off some seriously cool gear, including hologram map displays and motion-sensing asteroid avoidance systems, animated beautifully using motion capture tool iPi Soft. Watch the video below with an open mind—it might take three or four watches to understand the ending.”
