Daryl A's video for Cass Lowe's Birthmark drops us dizzyingly in the centre of a dysfunctional, and a times, grotesque family, in a grandiose and hyperreal surrounding. It's an impressive job, with stylish work from DoP Stephen Murphy, excellent VFX, and a fine ensemble cast.

"At its core, the video is about having someone there to steady you when everything in your life seems 'up in the air', to tell you that you are wrong, or right, when you really need someone," says Daryl.
