Fairewell is Londoner Johnny White, and 'Born Under A Bad Sign' is his song about going shopping in Tesco while it's snowing outside.

The video, below, bares no resemblance to that whatsoever. It features a load of cub scouts on a camping holiday who find a sheep, chase the sheep, befriend it, take it into their tent, feed it grass and take it to their local railway. I won't tell you what happens next, but if you like the sound of that – and the sound of Washed Out if he was from Britain and utterly rain-sodden – then press play:

Fairewell's debut album 'Poor, Poor Grendel' is out on December 5.
