In this new video from British filmmaker Jack Weatherley, a track from Brighton-based band Toydrum gets a sombre reworking by longstanding musical collaborators Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. “I’ve Got a Future,” featuring the vocals of late singer-songwriter Gavin Clark, first appeared in Shane Meadows’s coming-of-age drama This is England ’90.

Weatherley, who has been lauded for his emotionally-packed shorts—including BFI London Film Festival selection Pieces—talks about how the song affected him: “I was blown away when I first heard Nick and Warren’s reworking of the original. It moved me deeply. It’s one of those rare pieces that is at once unsettling and beautiful, as if there’s something—a presence—trapped within the texture of it.”
