Ash doesn’t make albums anymore. Instead, they put out singles with videos like this one. On the one hand, you would think that if they’d given up the album process entirely they might put a little effort into this, the visual representation of their music. But then again, the kind of people who completely disregard indebtedness to the album format probably are not that keen arbitrarily accoutring their music at all!
