The songtitle was presumably Sam Crack's inspiration to make a video where the Stricken City singer paints herself out of the picture.

It's a strong idea, neatly executed. And it had to be neat: there probably wasn't much leeway if black paint ended up in the wrong spot at the wrong time.

So nice one from Sam - who is now seeking new representation since leaving Manifesto.[pay]
