Not one to watch if you’re still feeling slightly delicate from the weekend, this trippy and colourful video for Lusts’ latest song takes the band to Blackpool, a fitting place considering the song’s title.

Directors, Youth Hymns described their fun and ever so slightly renegade process:

“After the crushing realisation that the budget didn’t quite stretch to a week-long getaway to light-filled Las Vegas, we headed to Blackpool for the night in an old Ford Capri. Jacked up on travel sickness pills, we ducked down, sitting in the back of the moving car and both monitored and remotely controlled a 360 degree spinning camera fixed to the vehicle. The police eventually got wind, due to the in-car lighting and embarrassingly loud exhaust. We were getting ready for a life behind bars, however once we discovered the copper had a soft spot for Capris (as every red blooded middle-aged male does), he sent us on our way.”
