Cosima does a lot of hanging out of a '70s Ford Granada in this self-directed video for To Build A House. It comes from a concept by DoP Ruben Woodin-Dechamps, who also shot it beautifully.

COSIMA:

“I wanted it to get across the emotion of the song and the feeling of abandonment. The video is basically me hanging out of a car for three and a half minutes – it’s that feeling of being out of control and acting out, as though you want someone to tell you to get back into the car and look after yourself or that they’ll look after you.”
