Beautiful Trash is accompanied by a cute but killer animated video by celebrated director and Australian 'national treasure', Lucy Dyson, available to view now on the Tru Thoughts YouTube channel. The 'B side' to this digital single is Beautiful Trash (Hidden Orchestra Remix), an atmospheric re-work that topples this breezy single over into menacing, dub-tinged sonic territory, with suspenseful, cinematic strings and sub bass galore.
