Ought have released a cinematic new clip for their song "Desire" off Room Inside the World, which dropped last month. The video wrestles with the conversations on gender that are suggested in the song's lyrics.

"'Desire' as a song has a real triumphant quality and masculine energy; I wanted to take this and subvert it and create a video that focused more on internal desire," said director Heather Rappard. "Something that was important to me was that the video feel cathartic and positive. I’ve seen a lot of videos that take on ideas around gender that have characters being assaulted, or just exoticized."
