dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip - 'You Will See Me'

In a dark, dark house...

If 2013's been kind to producer dan le lac and his MC cohort Scroobius Pip - plenty of praise has come their way for studio album number three, 'Repent, Replenish, Repeat' (Clash review) - then they've an odd way of showing it with videos as dark as this one.

"So here it is... our Christmas single!" writes the pair on their YouTube channel - but there's little festive spirit to be found here. 'You Will See Me', directed by Pip himself, finds the poetic frontman revealing a series of lyrics-relevant tattoos in someone's old front room. They've let the gaff go somewhat. There's a distinctly me-versus-you vibe to the words - Pip turns on a muse, stating that they're not someone he looks to when he's in his happy place, but rather when he needs to fight against something. A former lover? Perhaps: "I don't want you back... I just need to show you what you f*cking walked away from." Fair enough, lad. Fair enough.

Tense stuff, music and video alike. And that's before it goes all Twin Peaks. Check it out above, and see the pair on tour as follows...
