“The process was pretty much the same. We don’t have many ideas (laughs), so we take it to Bob, formulate ideas from it. With ‘Shoulderblades’, any idea before it was always kind-of narrative based, but we wanted to do something more abstract. So he came back with a few ideas, and showed us Una Doherty’s dancing. Once we saw that, we just thought, ‘she’s incredible’. If she was up for it, it would have been a no-brainer. The only thing we wanted was the colour scheme, blue and red, to fit the album. The rest was up to him, and it was his idea, we just got it back and said ‘yeah, class’.”
