Tim Burgess returns with a video for his latest single ‘White’.

The psychedelic 60s have been a reference point for every decade since. Dan Tombs has allowed a psychedelic influence to bleed through into his work, bulking up his electro-colour bending production credentials with the likes of Nathan Fake and Gold Panda.

Taking charge of the visuals for ‘White’ - Burgess’ single from his upcoming solo album ‘Oh No I Love You’ - Tombs has you imagine you're literally inside 2002’s mobile modernity: the Nokia 3510. One of the first phones to have colour, albeit slightly on the larger pixilation size than we’ve become used to, you’re on -no, 'in' - the cusp of the future.

A video that could seem claustrophobic, is made more than bearable when accompanied by Burgess’ nonchalant, yet full of purpose, vocal abilities and the occasional orchestral flourish that becomes more potent towards the end of ‘White’.

Watch the video below.
