Having figured that a lo-fi Nineties tape-look is very cool, Jack Lightfoot shot this raucously energetic video for Manchester three-piece Darlia on a very under-appreciated defunct tape format: Standard-8.  And it's pretty much ideal for the driving indie rock of Queen Of Hearts.

Jack Lightfoot: "I wanted to shoot a super low-fi video with a raw, 90's aesthetic and lots of energy - like an early Nirvana video or home video tape.

"To achieve this look, the video was shot entirely on Standard-8 tape, and set in the bands' rehearsal room / basement against a variety of trippy projections. And then the lads wanted to include freaky animal costumes, so I thought why the hell not."
