Using delicate choreography, a simple studio setting, and subtly mesmerising VFX, the clip shows Sampha sitting at his piano whilst the room around him swirls with the dust of his co-star's dwindling physical form.

The long form version of this video relies on the interplay between the two characters to underline the delicate beauty of the visuals and the track itself, whereas the shorter version is an immersive VR piece that allows you to take Sampha's place at the piano and see that beauty from a first-person perspective. Using VR as a companion piece to a larger, more traditional video format makes for a compelling interplay between the two and is one of the more immersive and rewarding VR experiences in music videos of late.
