Music video[edit]

A music video to accompany the release of "Dust Clears" was first released onto YouTube on 19 June 2013 at a total length of four minutes and fifty seconds. Talking about the video Clean Bandit said "We created and filmed the video ourselves completely and had an amazing time shooting it on a frozen lake in Sweden (Lake Vattern[2]). Two of Jack's friends from film school who helped us make the Mozart's House video came to Sweden to help with this one too: Anna Patarakina and Daria Novitskaya. Big thank you to them and Nick Martin, the skater featured in the video." The video was filmed, directed and produced by Clean Bandit.[3]

The video contains a reference to the painting by Henry Raeburn of The Skating Minister, portrayed by Nick Martin who dressed in the same clothes and copied the exact pose as in the painting at one point in the video.

Nick Martin is a teacher who lives in the Isle of Wight. He also appears in another clip Clean Bandit ("Rather Be"). The band and Nick came up with the concept of the "skating Minister" together.[4]
