Jack Whiteley gets together with New Zealand singer-songwriter Aldous Harding for this marvellous outing of minimalist quirkiness.

With a wonderful beach location - it's a secret as to exactly where, apparently - a striking use of colour, and a performance by Harding that gives full rein to her personality, she and Whiteley have created something really special for the lovely Fixture Picture. 

She certainly knows how to hold a tambourine. And how to rock a wide-brimmed hat.

JACK WHITELEY:

"Working with Aldous was nothing short of a miracle. She looked at me and said: “Jack, you can’t polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter and throw it at the wall.” So that’s what we did. And somehow something strange and beautiful stuck."
