Let’s be blunt.  It’s unlikely that Plaid’s debut single from their forthcoming album Scintilli will become as anthemic or well-known a tune as “Eyen” or their remix of Björk’s “All Is Full of Love”.

This is reinforced by the video, featured an anachronistic Chinese mistress submerged in water, twisting and dancing in sensual parallax to a wafting octopus.
