KT Tunstall returns with her sixth album and a surprising makeover from her classic rock-folk persona of the previous five.

Pijn 'Denial' by Luke Bather

Luke Bather, of this parish, has resourcefully made a video for rock outfit Pijn, using personal stories of loss written by their fans, being read by the bandmembers - with the full transcript of these stories being on an autocue which the viewer here can only see in reverse.

A bit like Radiohead's No Surprises with lots more text, and without Thom Yorke almost drowning.

St. Lucia 'Walking Away' by Henry Kaplan

Colour is everything in this intense performance video for St. Lucia by Henry Kaplan.

Idles 'Great' by Theo Watkins

Theo Watkins's video for Idles explores a certain type of classic British nostalgia.

Shot in various locations in a sun-drenched Bristol on Super 16mm, Watkins says: "It had to look like an old seaside postcard, smell like a fry-up and taste like your fourth pint of mild on a balmy afternoon." Job done.
