Luke Jackson’s inventive video for this catchy song features Banksy-esque art, animated and superimposed onto London walls. It’s a compelling mix of animation and photography featuring my favorite town in the world. This tune appears on And Then Some. Jackson trekked to Sweden to make the album with members of seminal Swedish pop bands such as Brainpool and the Cardigans.
