We covered the teaser clip on this a while back; quite pleasantly surprised that the previously poppy, self consciously quirky Beth Jeans Houghton had reinvented herself in a Polly Jean Harvey style, complete with production from a Bad Seed. Now we can give you the video as well. Unfortunately the video falls back to that self consciously quirky style that ensured Houghton's previous career wasn't as well received as the hype intended. Directed by the artist herself, edited by her, filmed by her mother; all split screens and mirror images. The easy availability of editing software now means that anybody can make a music video. Doesn't mean that everybody should.
So, excellent single, poor video. Watch with your eyes closed.
