'Directing duo Bedroom - Soren Harrison and Amir Hossain - deliver a characteristically inventive homage to early-2000s teen movies for pop juggernauts The 1975's Me And You Together Song.

Like every good teen movie, this one has its cliques - the goths, the preppy crew, the stoners and the jocks - and we learn that all roads lead to snogging, no matter how unique the teenager. But this one has a Bedroom vibe - mixed media, and a clever device to seamlessly interweave between scenes: characters climb through sinks and windows to move from space to space, the multiple sets connected in the same way the characters are interlinked throughout the video, while Matty and band orchestrate proceedings.

Packed full of colour and vibrant set design, art director Bobbie Cousins has done a smashing job of recreating the aesthetic of the early Noughties, and style-wise, Bedroom pull references from Von Dutch and various other popular brand names of the era. DoP Pieter Synman takes advantage of the carefree and fun vibe, utilising handheld movement and plenty of coloured lighting to match the aesthetic and energy of the track.'
