This music video made for New Zealand Shapeshifter, features dancing and choreography by The Oneill Tiwns. The short narrative was inspired by Japanese fables of foxes (kitsune), who were said to have the ability to transform into women. It was also inspired by Māori stories of the elusive 'Patupaiarehe'.

Turnaround is the first music video for New Zealand band, A HoriBuzz. Led by Aaron Tokona (Cairo Knife Fight), the video explores the dark and funny sides of a man trying to turn his life around. 

Tokona describes the song as one about transformation, “...basically the song is about a guy who’s done a lot to mess up his life... ultimately, the journey is really about forgiving himself and finding the courage to move past his mistakes.”
