Directed by Dougal Wilson, the video is set in the heart of the British countryside and see’s the girls take part in traditional Morris dancing.
On the video, Wilson says:
“The idea for Apparition came from the fact that the song had a mysterious, hypnotic feeling, and the fact that I’ve always found Morris dancing slightly strange and psychedelic,” says the video’s director, Dougal Wilson. “I’d also wanted to revisit Morris dancing since I made a Four Tet video in 2003, where I simply cut existing Morris footage to music. Since then, I’d always wanted to take the idea further by actually having a band learn Morris dancing themselves, and this seemed like an appropriate opportunity given the unexpected contrast of the girls’ personalities with the characters in a genuine Morris side.”
