Little Girl

Album: Sweet Heart Sweet Light (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Whilst the song's lyrics are about the preciousness of childhood, the Vincent Haycock directed video tells the story of about a young girl escaping her tedious life in a post-Soviet small town. The main character is played by Chesca Miles, one of the UK's top female stunt riders, who's joined by a number of Germany's finest stunt bikers.
  • The three-day shoot featured some hiccups. According to the press release, the filming included, "two crashes, a wrecked bike, a near-death tank rattle, 12 burnt out tires, a broken whipped cream charger, and a near arrest after police caught producers filming a high speed tracking shot on the autobahn into Berlin at 4am."
