Directed by Storma Cairns, the video evokes nostalgia, echoing the track’s rather gloomy lyrics of impaired family relationships. The video follows a lonely young boy who is going about his day. The boy is seen splashing around in the bath, doing the laundry and playfully getting caught in the sheets, making meals for himself and even playing around in his mother’s dress.

The video is rather relatable as it showcases boredom at its finest. It has been heralded as a rather nostalgic portrayal of an unsupervised, bored child with pent up energy-something a lot of people can understand.

‘Happy Family’ is the fourth track on Sundara Karma‘s debut album, ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’. At the moment, the English quartet is on a world wide tour. The dates are as follows:
