The Guillemots' MC Lord MAgRAo (definitely his real name) approached Up The Resolution - that's Dom Thompson-Talbot, Merlin Nation and Griff - to co-direct the video for the first single for their new album Red, and the result is this ravishing spectacle.

UTR's work has developed through pure animation to post-heavy work to pure live action - and they have a live action short film for two Cinematic Orchestra tracks coming out later this year. Get Over It definitely leans towards live action as well, but also has a graphic, vibrantly colourful quality - very Red in fact.

Lead singer Fyfe takes a surreal journey through his own sub-conscious, accompanied by various bandmembers, surrounded by teeming images mostly courtesy of back projections. Lovely old motor too.
