Directing duo Machine Operated grant us access to Greentea Peng's cool and colourful world, from the beginning of her day (which involves drinking tea) to an evening performing the track Nah It Ain't The Same with her band.

There are several trippy digressions from her gentle, groovy routine too, prompted by the camera stopping on the details of her day: the photos on her kitchen wall, the close-up of her burning joint, a bunch of flowers... Suddenly we're in another place entirely, or looking at a toy bus and a bus-shaped purse containing miniature toy money.

This all seems ideal for Greentea Peng and her brand of woozy, London-bred jazz-pop. It's the second video for her by Machine Operated - Josh Hercules and Nathan Taylor - who have captured the spirit of her mystique.
