On one level director Maximilian Neimann's video for German rapper Kontra K's An Deiner Seite (Next To You) is a nailbiting Nordic Noir thriller. But it also happens to be much more.

Radiohead have asked a number of artists and directors to interpret parts of songs from their new album A Moon Shaped Pool for their Instagram account.

Billie Marten goes Japanese, demurely observing a Samurai warrior in a delightful apple and cherry blossom-filled garden, and trying a spot of karate, in Rob Brandon's video for Milk & Honey.
