According to a press release, the video was directed by Dandypunk, André Kasten and Leah Moyer, and “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.”
