Agyness Deyn has directed a music video for new band Nimmo and The Gauntletts - scroll down to watch it.

The video marks Deyn's first foray into directing and came about after the band reached out to her after she played one of their songs on the radio. Speaking to NME Deyn recalled the story of how she came into contact with the Brighton band: "A friend put me on to them and I was making a playlist for BBC 6Music and I put one of their songs on. 6Music played the track, the band heard it and then the they messaged me on Twitter to say thank you. They asked me if wanted to be in the next video and I said, 'How about I write and direct a video and if you like it you can use it?'"

Speaking about the influences behind the 'Change' video, which you can see below, Deyn says she was inspired by the idea of "female identity and what defines you" adding, "the most monumental change for most people is from childhood to adulthood. I wanted the video to capture that grey area in between when you're become an adult and the child inside is shouting 'Hold on a minute!' You're mentally straddled between the two images, old and young."

Having previously flirted with a career in the music industry, guesting on Five O'Clock Heroes' 2008 single 'Who', Deyn says she has "absolutely no plans" to return to music but is keen on working behind the camera more, "I really love doing anything creative. I would love to carry on writing and directing."
