Video for the latest track taken from Holy Fire

Foals' latest single from third album Holy Fire sees the Oxford band team up with director Nabil once again after their previous collaboration on ‘Late Night’ - have a watch above.

The video depicts lead singer Yannis Philippakis looking worse for wear, chasing after a desert mirage of a certain freckled naked female before she tantalisingly disappears into dust. Drawing on similarly emotive landscapes as featured in their video for ‘Spanish Sahara’, the camera roams with bird's eye view images of the desert chase, while the track rumbles along on a four-to-the-floor beat and cowbell-charged chorus.
