"Elektrobank" is a song by English big beat duo The Chemical Brothers. It was released as a single from their second album, Dig Your Own Hole, on September 1997. It peaked at number 17 on the UK Singles Chart.[1] Spike Jonze directed the music video, which depicted a rhythmic gymnastics competition with his future wife Sofia Coppola as one of the competitors. It has been called "arguably Jonze's greatest music video".[2] Vocals were performed by Keith Murray; the bass line is performed by Ali Friend.[citation needed] Despite reaching number 17 in the UK Singles Chart, the single does not feature on either of the duo's singles compilations, Singles 93-03 and Brotherhood.
