The official video for hotly-tiipped Sheffield electro-pop outfit Starlings was made by unsigned Derby-based directing/producing team Adi Kerr and James Knott - all shot on a very blustery Beeley Moor in Derbyshire.

"We had only a tiny budget for this video, which just about covered van hire, smoke grenades, the material for the Sirens dress and a pack of biscuits to keep everybody happy," says Adi Kerr. "That combined with a rapid turnaround meant we needed to keep it simple. And as many great videos in the past have shown us, it doesn't get more simple than one man walking or running towards the camera. "Shot on the Canon 550D, leaning out the back of a tiny van, whilst holding smoke grenades, on an open road (cheers for nothing, Derbyshire council) Health and Safety would have had a field day. All that considered, we're pretty chuffed with the outcome, and so were the label."
