Director Olivier Groulx pushes Wild Beasts into a new, gritty and sexier direction with the video for Get My Bang video. Shot at night on the streets of Budapest, we’re treated to a slick outdoor performance intercut with some choreographed bravado between frontman Hayden Thorpe and his female co-star.

Groulx employs his usual skill with lighting and colour to enhance these scenes: reds cut into greens and we slice between orange street lights and deep, artificial blues. It’s a part-seduction, part-fight between Thorpe and his lady friend, and features some great scenes involving a car filled with smoke and pink lasers. Because, honestly, why not?
