"This video was to be Tom's first musical appearance in five years, so we wanted to do something that reintroduced him in a new guise and went some way to alluding to what he had been up to during his absence in a wry manner," Ollie explains. "Tom and I are both huge fans of counter culture television (something I've explored the themes of in my side project, theknockingshop.tv) and in this instance we wanted to do something that paid homage to Glenn O'Brien's <em>TV Party</em> from The Factory-era late seventies New York. Using this as a starting point we decided upon 'Tom Vek's Island', with Tom playing host to imaginary band fronted by a Debbie Harry lookalike. "We chose to use a POV device to create an immersive feeling, to put you inside the video and explore the sentiment of the track first hand."
