Directed by Dandypunk, André Kasten and Leah Moyer, the video highlights new artistic and performance elements from the song's LOVE show presentation. Throughout the video, Dandypunk's hand-drawn illustrations connect LOVE's performer, Eira Glover, with projected imagery in a series of ethereal settings. All effects were created using projection mapping and captured live, in-camera. No post production CGI was used.
