Deaf Havana have released a video for Worship, the third single from their latest album Rituals.

Worship, for me, is potentially the saddest song on the record, there’s an underlying melancholy to it,” explains James Veck-Gilodi. “I wrote it with my brother in a flat in Sheffield and we came up with phonetic sounds before we came up with lyrics, which is probably why the chorus melody is so rhythmic and not typical of how I usually write. It’s one of my favourite tracks on the record and it was the song we wrote the quickest, I think all in all it took us 15 minutes.”

And what’s the video all about then? We’ll leave that to Sedlec Ossuary, who's worked with Lily Allen and Hurts.

“The song in itself is a reflection, a meditation; on a life once intertwined with another," says Sedlec. "As such, when we join Deaf Havana, the band are encased within a mirrored room. Their reflection is clear and endless - the internalisation of error - the never-ending cycle of anamnesis and atonement for ones priors. As we move outside - both metaphorically and physically - to be illuminated and exposed to the elements, we begin to embrace who we are and our mistakes; as they are present for all to see."


The band have also lined up a headline show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on December 7. Support comes from iDKHOW and Stereo Honey.
