David Knight - 23rd Feb 2018

After a relationship-busting argument, a goth and a geek find themselves rewinding to their favourite moments down the years, in the place where it started - the local kids' playground. 

Alexander Darby's video for The Fratellis' Starcrossed Losers is sweet and poignant, making good use of the wind-blasted location with his couple portrayed as kids, teenagers, and reflective adults.
