"Deserts categorically aren't suitable for most lifeforms but there's unquestionable beauty in extraterrestrial landscapes and deserts with unbridled skies, sun and violent monsoons," she said over email. She shows the landscape off in her latest video (directed by Miguel Norigenna and Keivon Hobeheidar) for lead track 'The Frontier,' where she rides her motorcycle across the Sonoran desert at sunset.
