David Knight - 14th Nov 2018

It's Take That, but not quite as you've ever seen them before.

Mike Baldwin sends Gary, Mark and Howard through a hyperreal mishmash of visual styles, throws them a few instruments and, bingo - he's made a rollicking video for Out Of Our Heads, with a lighthearted, Sixties psycheledia-lite vibe.

The guys, particularly Gary, buy into this lighthearted family-friendly version of befuddlement. And the feeling that this could have popped from an old TV show, like The Monkees, is emphasised by their brief appearance in cartoon form. Maybe they could be the new Gorillaz...
