Polish-German director Aldona Kwiatowski makes a notable music video debut for this track from Elderbrook's debut album. It's a story of a brief encounter, featuring Charly Clive and Tamica Thompson.

The video for Numb explores the introspectiveness of feeling alone, and the delight of friendship - which turns out to be fleeting, or at least temporary.

Clive's character is distinctly alone, as she prepares for a night out, and then walks through the streets of Shoreditch. But then something happens when she connects with another woman, and develops a non-verbal bond, through dance. It's a charming device to demonstrate the growing chemistry between them, delicately handled by Kwiatowski. 

And there is room to explore the possible history of the relationship, which has a poignant ending.
