I am guessing many of you have seen this already, but if you haven't take a look- prepare yourself tissues are needed, it's an emotional watch.
There are so many things I could say about this. The song came about through Tim Booth losing his mother and a friend in quick succession. I remember seeing James when I was a student, they were a big part of the whole Manchester/Madchester scene. The video maker, Ainslie Henderson was inspired by the lyric, "unwinding" and a glance at a ball of wool in a shop window. The yarn for the figures came from Jo's (Bearpaw) shop- I love this connection to the crafting world. We're all inevitably affected by death in our lives. There was a suicide in my family 18 months ago. Its a harsh way to lose somebody and it colours the rest of your life. I know it made me unravel mentally, especially a few months back in the winter months. I am just putting together a summer playlist, an annual thing for me and this track was my first choice. Enjoy and be ready to cry x
