End of year
The music video features the band performing in a pub, and dancing/playing in the park. During the video, Laura Marling, who provides backing vocals for the group, is seen playing a tin whistle and also giving the camera the two-fingers. The video was directed by James Copeman. The style of the video resembles a Wes Anderson film, using the same font the director uses in his films/music videos.
