Taken from their acclaimed Mercury Prize nominated album ‘How To Be A Human Being‘, ‘Agnes’ is ‘one of the most personal songs that the band have ever written’. Fittingly, the video ‘explores the weight of grief in an abstract way’, by a Human Centrifuge machine.
“There are varying degrees of autobiography and my own life in each song I write – but for the most part, that stuff is buried and clouded in fiction or blended with other people’s lives that I’ve heard about in taxis or at parties or on the street. But there is one song that stands apart from the rest. That song is ‘Agnes’. ‘Agnes’ is the one. It’s my favourite song on the record, and the saddest song I will ever write. Probably.” – Dave Bayley
