The film, which is directed by James Slater sees James Skelly and co in the studio going through the tracklisting of their brand new record, which begins with their intoxicating Eyes Like Pearls song.

Speaking about the album's sumptuous opening track, Skelly says: "I usually write with the guitar. Didn't even mess around. The chorus just came to me when I was watching telly and it was just stuck on a loop."
