Belle and Sebastian Terrorize ‘Skins’ Star in ‘Your Cover’s Blown’ Remix Video

belle and sebastian, third eye centre, your cover's blown, video

Belle and Sebastian’s new B-sides and rarities collection is out today (August 27). The indie-pop Glaswegians are celebrating with a terrifyingly twee video for Miaoux Miaoux’s electro-fied remix of “Your Cover’s Blown,” originally a career landmark from their 2004 Books EP. Directed by Graeme O’Hara, the just-released clip stars Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones, the U.K. version of Skins) as a young woman whose entire life is being made over to better fit into one of Stuart Murdoch’s precious character studies. Her drab bathroom walls suddenly sprout a pattern of painted fishes, her messy kitchen fills with vibrantly colored fruits and baked treats, and the stiff shot of liquor she orders at a bar magically turns into a quaint cup of tea. Watch it above (via the Guardian) and stay tuned for the creepy twist ending, a play on The Shining that’s primed for the sweater-vest crowd.
