The captivating clip was directed by Vincent Comparetto and offers an exotic old world black and white feel of a long lost Fellini spy film. The angular industrial sets appear as if shot in some non existent former Soviet state. The climactic moped chase is nothing short of sublime.
As the director explains, "We wrapped our heads around a couple of concepts, and there were definitely a lot of areas we lined up on. I love Constructivism and Suprematism, so I wanted to work some of those ideas into the video. You'll see in a lot of the locations."
