Sometimes, falling in love can be stressful. It can prang you out and make you check your WhatsApp messages one too many times and do weird things to your self-esteem. Other times, it can come into your life with such ease it's like smoking a blunt and not realising you're baked until you find yourself giggling at the weird shape of your shoes.

Rat Boy's track "Laidback", which was released last week and which includes a guitar feature from Graham Coxon, is about this second kind of love which – even when it doesn't go to plan – just feels easy. Today we're premiering his self-directed video for the track and it's just as dreamy as the name suggests. Set under a banner of evening sky and the kind of warm nights where you sprawl out beside a bonfire drinking cider, "Laidback" looks exactly how summer nights should feel. You can watch the video above.
