A dizzying, neon-splashed clip, the video set was designed by Antony Neale (Stefflon Don, Lily Allen, Hurts).
Speaking about the track, the band’s James Veck-Gilodi says: “‘Worship’, for me, is potentially the saddest song on the record, there’s an underlying melancholy to it. I wrote it with my brother in a flat in Sheffield and we came up with phonetic sounds before we came up with lyrics, which is probably why the chorus melody is so rhythmic and not typical of how I usually write. It’s one of my favourite tracks on the record and it was the song we wrote the quickest, I think all in all it took us 15 minutes.”
The video’s director Sedlec Ossuary says: “The song in itself is a reflection, a meditation; on a life once intertwined with another. As such, when we join Deaf Havana, the band are encased within a mirrored room. Their reflection is clear and endless - the internalisation of error - the never-ending cycle of anamnesis and atonement for ones priors. As we move outside - both metaphorically and physically - to be illuminated and exposed to the elements, we begin to embrace who we are and our mistakes; as they are present for all to see.”
