Musical and cultural force UNKLE have released their video for “Hold My Hand” after initially being pulled from YouTube. Directed by UNKLE frontman and multi-talented James Lavelle in accordance with Black Dog Films, the video features Lavelle’s friend and performance artist Miss Crash.

The film was executed and conceptualized spontaneously, shot within 24 hours, which makes for an intimate and striking portrayal of Miss Crash. A bit hard to watch for the squeamish, the short film is ultimately rewarding and provides the perfect backdrop to the driving song.

Directed by: James Copeman, James Lavelle & Ben Newbu
