The ‘Mercury & Me’ video was created by Everything Everything frontman Jonathan Higgs. Describing the process of creating the visual, he said: “The video was made in 3D using motion capture, and was my first attempt at capturing a live performance and recreating it in software. I tried to make an atmosphere that reflected the starkness of the song.”
