Music video

The music video for the song was directed by W.I.Z.. The clip, which shows a love story set in the 1950s, was described by W.I.Z. as "an imagined hybrid of pop-art screenprint, hand tinting and Technicolour film". W.I.Z. also explained that "[We wanted] playful, sensual ideas of teen angst, rock and roll and Americana; we wanted to a make a piece that was urgent as well as effortless, precision with abandon".
