A sharp juxtaposition to their usual sombre fare, the band’s new single ‘Take Me Away’ is a sunshine anthem packed full of steel drums, feel-good vibes, and escapism—the perfect sonic remedy for a springtime bursting into life whilst being stuck inside the house. 

The focus of the music video is on the moment of freedom that we all experience once a day during the lockdown, and how we can seize this opportunity to express ourselves creatively, despite the limitations.

The video was directed by the band’s long-time artistic collaborator, Peter Michael, who described his vision for the film as capturing “one walk to take you away”, and features dancer/choreographer, Yos Clark.

Commenting on the idea, the band said: "We had planned to film the video for ‘Take Me Away’ a few weeks ago, but of course we had to push that back since we're all stuck at home. In the meantime, our good friend, long-term photographer/videographer and all-round insanely talented human being Peter Michael—who was going to direct the video anyway—asked his housemate (who just so happens the wonderfully talented dancer Yos Clarke) if he fancied putting on in his headphones, popping on the song and going for his one walk a day—this is what happened."
