This video follows a trio of psychedelic astronauts as they hunt for human hearts in ghostly brutalist settings. At loss within a seemingly abandoned metropolis, these silver-clad adventurers sport enigmatic spiral badges on their chests. In between their routine musical performances, they hunt for a sign of life, which they find in a very literal form. The death of a fourth astronaut ensues, but as this one comes back to life, the tables turn. The premise of the video was loosely inspired by themes present in the song’s lyrics as well as in the band’s debut album of the same name. Elliott drew inspiration from 60’s and 70’s sci-fi b-movies, and shot the video in two well-known brutalist London landmarks: Alexandra Road Estate and Brownfield Estate.
