The video was directed by LA-based Young Replicant who Alt-J had previously worked with on the clip for "3WW
", and was choreographed by Darcy Wallace. The visual features three woman dancing around an apocalyptic bunker, each representing aspects of the trio's historical crushes.
"Darcy took the lyrics first and choreographed it after researching each character," Newman explained. "She looked at Lee Miller's photos and the Tudor style and famed beheading of Anne Boleyn. She did her research and she came up with this beautiful, collaged choreography that we then took to Alex who worked out a story to go around the dancing."
