The 1975 have unveiled a brand new video for latest single 'Settle Down'. Watch the clip below. 

Taken from the Manchester band's self-titled No.1 debut album, the video sees the band returning to their grim and dark black and white aesthetic from their earlier videos - after abandoning it for the American movie vibe of 'Sex' and the colourful pop feel of 'Girls'.

The video for 'Settle Down' tells the story of a young boy, lost and troubled in a post-industrial rural village. Matt Healy's there, wandering out looking moody and observing proceedings before they take a peculiar twist before the end.

The video is sure to please the hardcore fans, after many didn't take issue with the nudity or drug use shown in the 'Sex' video, but were disappointed the band had ditched the black and white aesthetic they have used since their early days.

"There's been a reaction to it. People have really kicked off about it. It's in colour for a start, and all of our fans are like 'oh, I preferred the old video', which is so predictable, it's sweet," frontman Matt Healy told Gigwise last year. "I think what that is, is kids reinstating how cool they are and showing people that they saw us first. I get that. That's totally cool."
