Stevie Russell's video for Dirty Blonde features Irish dance and yoga guru Jess Rowell in a performance that makes a leap from the grim reality of the morning after the night before.

Rowell wakes on the sofa, with partner, after what appears to be a hell-raising house party. Her movements are then far more graceful than the situation suggests, but certainly fired by haunting melancholy of Dirty Blonde's song Temporary Fix. 

The lyrics appear to be motivating her to make a fateful early morning decision. But will she go through with her impulse?
