The new Xcerts video contains some serious garage band action, a pink frisee, and Murray's luscious long hair. What's not to love?

Speaking of the track, frontman Murray MacLeod has said: "We've actually been playing this song live for quite a while now so we're excited to finally release it. Originally this song had a real 60's vibe to and it was really jangly. Over time it got progressively heavier, i then entered a world of fuzz and the song was truly born. Musically It's very simple and very fun. Lyrically the song is about helplessness and i how i was solely to blame for finding myself in a regretful postition with another person. In previous songs / records i have always found a scapegoat when singing about something i'm to blame for but i've grown up a bit and this time round i'm throwing my hands in the air and admitting my faults."

The Xcerts play Camden's Black Heart tonight in London before hitting a few other venues around the country this week. We firmly recommend going along to see them:

21 - LONDON Black Heart
22 - YORK Duchess
23 - GLASGOW Nice N'Sleazys
24 - ABERDEEN Tunnels
25 - SHEFFIELD Tramlines Festival

The Xcerts' third album is due out later this year. HURRY UP GODDAMMIT.
