Dave Okumu from the band had this to say about the video: "We were looking for something which conveyed a very personal journey through landscapes that were at times familiar, at others unsettling and otherworldly. The song itself is a meditation on protection. It's about knowing how to look after the thing which brings you to a place of safety when faced with danger.
We worked closely with filmakers Mark Glenister and Joe Hunt to find a way of representing this. It was important for us to get the tone right. This was helped significantly by having my nephew play the lead character as well as balancing abstraction with meaning by including elements of our existing visual language."
Rispah will be released 11 June.
