Cat Velez - 27th July 2015

Steve Glashier provides teenage rock band The Strypes with a more sophisticated setting for their brand of blues-rock than previously in the video for A Good Night's Sleep And A Cab Fare Home: a bumper-to-bumper traffic jam at night bathed in classically erotic red streetlight. 

The boys are all performing from their own cars, and their serenading is revealed to be directed at a mysterious girl in white – she's the cause of the massive hold-up.

Glashier, who has been working this year with Black Rivers (the new project by members of Doves), Longfellow, Postcards from Jeff, Chrissie Hynde and Simply Red, shot the video on a test track in Bedford – and all within the few hours of darkness of the British midsummer.
