Sorry's new video will take you back to the glory days before broadband, where images running across your computer screen would often be heavily pixelated. This is not a case of AOL letting you down though, the censored images on the "Starstruck" video only add to the murky and seductive image the band is throwing up in its latest video.

"Starstruck" is a mix of wiry riffs and lead singer Asha Lorenz's fast-paced vocals. "I don't play quite like you do," she whispers at one point over a low-slung bassline before the song hurtles into it's jagged and addictive chorus. The video, meanwhile, matches this seedy but alluring sound all the way with a mass of semi-naked bodies and a cheap night out that nobody will remember in the morning. Flirtation and sexual tension are rife throughout the whole affair, with the pixels becoming more and more prominent as the hedonism increases.

Asha, who directed the video alongside Flo Webb, tells The FADER that: "'Starstruck' is is our homemade ode to saucy old pop videos," and it's hard to disagree. Check out the video for yourself above.

Sorry play their next London show at Dingwalls on March 28. Tickets are available now.
