Two young women engage in a punch-up with a difference in Jak Payne's absorbing video for dance-pop duo Franc Moody. 

The well-matched females' battle in an empty warehouse space, in a choreographed style that blurs the line between fighting and dancing. Their intriguing relationship and interdependence, is a smart visual expression of the line in the song about "the chemistry between us". But then things really do get out of hand... 

Beautifully shot by David Foulkes, you definitely sense the chemistry, through Payne's direction, Charlie Von Rotberg's sharp editing - and pugnacious performances by the fighters, Shaina West and Yolanda Lynes.
