Following the breathtaking video for King, Autumn de Wilde continues her collaboration with Florence + The Machine in this untamed promo for Heaven Is Here. Taking things back to where they started in the previous video, Florence appears with the same group of dancers, this time appearing as one of them, losing the purple shroud and the supernatural aura of her previous incarnation. The performance is feral, impulsive and assertive, and the overall atmosphere feels incredibly raw and authentic. This is certainly the spiritual successor to King, which feels otherworldly and transcendent whilst building upon the abstract narrative and themes of the music. As mentioned in our review of the King, many of the people involved in making the video, from the Ukranian production company Radioaktive and other freelance film crew, are now fighting for the survival of their country, and their lives. Our prayers are with them and their fellow citizens.
