Luke Bather - 7th Mar 2017

Louis Bhose explores a personal quest of self-improvement in his video for Toothless.

A montage of pain with little gain sees the hero of this story attempt to remain active by going to the gym (but ends up throwing up) or expanding their literary repertoire (but falling asleep about four pages into Gravity's Rainbow). It's a great, bittersweet exploration of doing the right things for the wrong reasons and how that rarely seems to pan out well.

LOUIS BHOSE:

"I wanted to make a video that reflected how the majority of my friends and I deal with self-improvement - one step forward, two steps back. I liked that the song was about the breakdown of a relationship and remembered, in the wake of an old break-up, my own empty and lacklustre attempts to lose weight, read more, be on my phone less, be more productive.

"I feel like both Ed and I have experienced what it is to be out of shape and out of ideas, and this was a very personal video for both of us. I can't applaud him enough for having the balls to go through with it."
