Take a look at the new video for You're Getting Like Your Sister below

Bill Ryder-Jones, former Coral man and now a seasoned multi-instrumentalist and composer, released his second solo album A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart earlier this year, as well as lending a hand to the Arctic Monkeys' latest album AM, and we've now got a first look at the wonderfully animated video for album track 'You're Getting Like Your Sister' - have a watch above.

Here's what Ryder-Jones says about the video: "In the song the boy finally gets the girl he's been obsessing about. He has a problem with his temper though and one day he loses it, murders her and ultimately gets away with the crime. Years later he meets her sister and they form a friendship through the trauma. The song hinges on the line 'you're getting like your sister' that's the point where hopefully you realise the extent of his illness. In his mind both sisters are the same and history repeats when he kills her too and buries them in the same spot."

Anyone with tickets for Anna Calvi's show at Islington Assembly Hall on October 8 will be able to catch Ryder-Jones in support; in the meantime, you can get hold of the album here.
