Rozi Plain has recently returned to her solo work after some time spent touring as part of This Is The Kit, and she put her new experience into the creation of new record What A Boost, which was released back in April. Today we bring you the visual accompaniment for one of the album's highlights 'Swing Shut'.

Rozi has said of the track " I think it thinks about doors opening and closing between people. Responsibilities to do with keeping the doors open or knowing when to close them. Who's keeping the key? Who's kicking out the door wedge? Who's haunting who? Relationships changing, leaving and moving. Opening up and shutting down."

For the video, she and director Tom Lock Griffiths have delved into this dichotomy, with Rozi appearing as two different entities as she sings along to the infectious track. Griffiths' picks up the themes of 'Swing Shut' in his clip, saying:

“Rozi’s brilliant track Swing Shut, has this great duality, it’s something you can dance around your kitchen to but also has this melancholy edge, a hint of anxiety, so we wanted to have two Rozi’s, sometimes at odds but also in harmony. We both really like greens and blues too.”

Check out the 'Swing Shut' video below.
