Pop on your rose-coloured glasses and let Asta and Yeo take you back to the ‘70s with a simple, split screen insight into the two perspectives making up a classic relationship disagreement.

There’s nothing more Australian than a band in all whites trekking it out on sand dunes (and at times rolling down them), popping champagne and busting out a solid tune under the blistering sun. It’s as liberating as a clip can get for a tune this big, and is amplified even further with those sweet aerial shots. Also, defs needs a big fat language warning on this one.
Director: Roxanne Halley
Roxanne Halley takes Hachiku’s track ‘Moonface’ to the literal next level, transforming her face into a DIY moon floating in the night sky, tipping a hat to the lol-legends of The Mighty Boosh. And the DIY adventures don’t end there, as moonface stops by an underwater world and later watches over two fishermen’s interpretive dance. It’s all here bby.
