Four Tet: “Baby” - 4 mins 44s

Ellie Goulding provides the vocals on Four Tet's latest single 'Baby', and Joanna Nordahl has directed a soaring promo to match. The near-five-minute film features sweeping shots of natural landscapes and man-made environments alike, transitioning seamlessly from location to location with ceaseless motion.

There's a pleasantly hypnotic quality to the visuals, as the combination of beat-driven sounds and choppily remixed vocals lulls the viewer into a trance-like state. The use of light is also impressive, as Nordahl and DP Andreas Aguilera Morillas use twilight shots to give things an otherworldly quality - dawn and dusk worldwide, without pause.
