Young directing partnership Will & Carly make their strongest statement yet with the new Faux video.

In many respects it's a simple idea: a dance performance you realise is happening backwards. What makes it good is how it keeps offering new pleasures - and making very good use of what might consider familiar locations.

And ultimately they show something that's always been a winner, from Fred & Ginger to The Blaze: two people dancing with each other.

Watch 'Faux 'Take Back Time' by Will & Carly' here

Take Back Time is a classic ‘break-up’ song, a typical ‘You don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone’.

Musically it’s a nostalgic, upbeat pop song with its twinkling synths, funky bass line and soulful chorus. Delve a little deeper though and you expose lyrics that are regretful and sad. We wanted to create a visual interpretation of the song that mirrored these contradictory feelings. Something which is sincere and sombre but ultimately leaves you with feel good vibes.

The film tells the story of a girls break up expressed though a dance performance that plays out in reverse, giving her the chance to retrace her steps, turn back the clock and revisit the love she lost.
