Watch the new video from Siobhan Wilson, taken from her upcoming Song, by Toad LP There Are No Saints 

Having appeared on the label's Insider Festival split 12'' alongside David Thomas Broughton, Jonnie Common and Sparrow and the Workshop back in 2014, Siobhan Wilson releases her first album for Song, by Toad this summer. We're delighted to share the video for Whatever Helps, taken from Wilson's new album recorded with prolific Glasgow producer (and Catholic Action frontman) Chris McCrory – watch the video in the player at the top of the page.

A track about tackling grief and depression, Wilson describes Whatever Helps' message as "always trying to find a way to pick yourself up after you've fallen on your knees." On the track's intimate and abstract video, Wilson reveals: "Alistair Ogilvy, who made the video, is a very dear musician friend. I was sitting, playing cello and he was singing at the piano when I told him I was thinking about making a music video.

"We ended up staying up late, doing that instead of jamming. It's meant to be a bit of a recreation of me writing the song: in my house, playing my guitar and lighting candles."

There Are No Saints by Siobhan Wilson is out on digital, CD and vinyl on 14 July via Song, by Toad – pre-order here. Wilson plays The Glad Cafe on 30 Jun – tickets available here.
