The video, which you can see above, was filmed in south London, where Pyke lives. We see him riding his bike through the streets, hanging with his impeccably dressed friends, and stopping in at a greasy spoon cafe for a hot drink. No matter the backdrop, he looks to be in his own carefree world at all times..

"It was fun making the video, this one's about me and my life," Pyke tells The FADER via email. "I styled all my friends in Peckham with my dad's clothes. It's set in my area and local people have cameos."

"Chronic Sunshine" is the second release from Pyke's forthcoming debut EP produced by Fraser T Smith, who has worked with artists such as Adele and Stormzy. Check out the video above.
