The music video is as notable. Shot by genius Scottish Director Lynne Ramsay, who shot one of my favourite films of all time, Ratcatcher. The cast are all real normal kids from on a rough estate in Scotland, and I remember the production crew being terrified!

I had the chance to meet her a few times, coincidently when she was planning this promo, and I probably made a show of myself, as she is such a hero that I just kind of blushed and giggled a lot. She is also a lovely person.

Enjoy the sights and sounds…
