The song's music video was directed by Young Replicant and shot in Palm Springs, Florida during The xx's early 2013 tour across North America. The clip features Sim performing the track while wandering about and dancing outdoors under a full moon. His bandmates had decided very early on that the bassist would be the star of the clip. "We love to be really involved in our videos, and the idea came out of a conversation," Madley Croft explained to MTV News. "I really wanted it to be all about Oliver, really, as it should be; that's his song on the album, 'Angels
' is my song, so it should be about him ... The idea of him performing a bit more was a big focus."
